Building Plan, Wyndham Fire Brigade Proposed Extension

About this object

This plan, drawn up by D J Smith on 18 November 1973, was for a proposed extension to the Wyndham Fire Station that never eventuated. The Wyndham Fire Brigade formed in 1954, and their original station building was constructed in 1959. This consisted of one wide bay. The station was extended in 1968, becoming a two bay station with a social room at the back.

These plans for a further extension would have added a storeroom and realigned the kitchen, putting part of the kitchen into the existing social room. However, the 1968 station remained unchanged until its demolition in 1998, when it was replaced by the current one.

This plan is actually a proposed extension that never eventuated. The original station was build in 1959, one bay wide. Was extended in 1968 to two bays with a social room built at the back all. This further extension with a storeroom and realigned kitchen put in to part of the existing social room never eventuated. The 1968 station remained unchanged till its demolition in 1998 when it was replaced by the one we have now.
