Scope of Work
This project consists of building a new fire station to replace existing Fire Station 4. The new building will be approximately 14,400 square feet with a 3-vehicle bay facility, living quarters, offices and space for training and storage. It was determined that an expansion of the site with fire operations taking place in the existing building while the new building is constructed on an expanded site footprint would provide the most cost effective solution. This subsequently required purchase of an adjoining property to accommodate the larger building and site restraints necessitated plans for retrofit of an offsite stormwater facility to treat stormwater from the expanded fire station impervious area.
Status of Project
The project is currently under construction. Work started in Nov. 2013 with the retrofit of the offsite BMP in the Westmoreland Subdivision. The offsite work was completed in Dec.2013 despite frequent rains and poor drying conditions. Site work began with clearing of the fire station site in Dec.2013. Stormwater piping and utility relocation are progressing slowly due to weather and must be completed before site grading can take place.
