Former ambulance service HQ to become new apartments for Rotherham
Planners have given the green light to proposals from local developer, Jaguar Estates, to convert former ambulance service offices into luxury apartments.
The designs by Self Architects and White Design will convert Fairfield House, in Rotherham, a 19th century detached building, into five two-bedroom apartments.
Fairfield House has been used by Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) as administration offices and forms part of a one-acre site on Moorgate Road which was bought by Jaguar Estates from YAS in March 2018.
Self Architects’ director, Martyn Smith, said: “We have greatly enjoyed collaborating with Jaguar Estates on this project. It has been a very interesting building to work on and it is wonderful to see it being brought back into residential use.
“We feel that the scheme has maintained the character of this historic property while creating high quality living spaces in a desirable location.”
The site also includes a former ambulance station building which was used as a communications control centre before new emergency contact centres were created in Wakefield and Rotherham.
Planners have already agreed to the demolition of the station building and a further application has now been submitted by Self Architects and White Design for six four-bedroomed detached houses on that part of the site.
Self Architects and White Design are part of the Trebbi Family of companies that all operate within the construction industry to provide a complete suite of multi-disciplinary building consultancy services.
Rod Wadsworth, a Jaguar Estates group director, added: “We are delighted to receive approval to convert the period building into five, large luxury apartments.
“The works will be completed in early 2019 and will retain many of the historic features, whilst providing superb, spacious top-end living in a delightful setting.
“On the remainder of the site we are looking to build six, large four-bedroom detached houses and, if planning consent is given, we expect these will be available late 2019.”
