Emergency Service Developments

Sanderson Associates have used vehicle swept path analysis extensively to inform the design process in developing many new fire stations and emergency service developments for West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester Fire Authorities and others.

Swept Path Analysis has also been undertaken for many NHS Trusts and Ambulance Authorities to ensure these emergency vehicles can undertake the necessary manoeuvres required at new hospitals or existing sites where the layouts are changing.

AutoCAD simulation of various emergency vehicles is undertaken to ensure efficient access and egress to fire stations, hospitals and NHS trust sites and that training facilities can also accommodate worst case scenario vehicle turning requirements.

The swept paths below shows a Fire Tender making various manoeuvres within a site.
