Since 1995 Gardiner Associates has been providing fire/arson investigation training programmes. In 2000 we began delivering practical courses at the Ministry of Defence Police HQ at Wethersfield, Essex. Within the confines of this former air base, a range of specially constructed compartments enabled fire/arson scene examiners to hone their investigation skills in authentic environments.

In 2010, the opportunity was presented to acquire almost the sole use of land outside the perimeter of the base, where we have constructed a new fire/crime investigation training, test and research facility appropriately named ‘Phoenix Heights’.
