Fire Station 1 - James City - Bruton Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad
Apr. 27, 2015
Scope of Work
The James City - Bruton Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad in Toano was originally built on the former Toano High School site. The existing fire station will be replaced with a new 21,791-square-foot station consisting of five, pull-through, double loaded apparatus bays for emergency vehicles, an adjacent tower for training and hose drying, a large training room and an adjacent commercial kitchen to serve the public during community meetings. Site improvements include an emergency vehicle return drive aisle, relocated fueling station, relocated metal storage building, additional parking and an improved on-site storm-water management system. In addition, built-in training elements throughout the facility will provide on-site training opportunities, minimizing the need for costly off-site training. New administrative offices will be included for the volunteer firefighters, career firefighters and rescue squad. The bunk space will accommodate up to 20 individuals on a typical night. Upon completion of the new facility, the existing station will be razed. This project was designed and will be constructed for LEED Silver certification.
