The bar graph allows users to interpret the moisture level at a glance. Additionally, the instrument features a large, easy to read, numerical LCD display, with low battery indication. Five different measurement scales are included – wood 1, wood 2, plaster, concrete and a reference scale, measuring moisture over the range 0.1 to 40.0%. Two steel pins are used to measure the moisture level at the surface by measuring the resistance of the material between the two pin electrodes. Readings are instant, precise and specific to the contact area of the electrodes that are used. Each unit is housed in a robust ABS case, and is powered by


three AAA batteries that give a minimum of 350 hours battery life. The instrument will power off automatically after ten minutes, maximising battery life. This feature can be disabled by the user, if required. An optional colour-coded protective silicone boot is also

Pick Everard Completes £4.5M Fire Station Redevelopment being built.


The £2.5m work at Coalville involved the complete demolition and rebuilding of the existing fire and rescue station to make the new building more modern and energy efficient.

The £2m redevelopment of Hinckley Fire Station was also completed as part of the same redevelopment programme. The refurbished station in Leicester Road has been – remodelled so that it includes a new residential accommodation block for day crew and shift staff and a new purpose-designed training house building. Pick Everard’s latest schemes follow its £8.25m project last year to create Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service’s new headquarters development in Birstall for which Pick Everard was commissioned to deliver full multi-disciplinary design, project and cost-management services.


"Coalville and Hinckley stations will now be much more cost effective for the Fire and Rescue Service to run in today’s tough economic times.” Pick Everard was responsible for the design and project management of both schemes. Key objectives included providing high quality sustainable buildings which incorporated layout efficiencies and distinctive architecture.


"Completing the projects without any negative impact on the delivery of the fire and rescue service was key to the success of both sites,” Barrie added.


The new station in Broad Street, Coalville incorporates accommodation for a day crew and shift working pattern, with the installation of sleeping quarters which has been designed to provide the most up-to-date facilities and enable fire fighters to do their jobs in more comfortable working conditions.


Coalville’s fire crew operated from temporary accommodation in Atlas Road, less than a mile from the site, while the new development was
