News and Recognition
The new fire station will provide added space and equipment necessary to service a growing Cedar Springs populous, of which the fire department serves a 16 square mile area and approximately 5,600 residents. The new 10,000 square foot fire station will be triple the size of the existing facility, providing much-needed space for meeting, training, and equipment storage. It will also be compliant with new federal standards and local code.
The new fire station features a nearly 7,000 square foot pre-engineered metal building for the apparatus area with four vehicle bays for fire engines, as well as storage areas for cleaning and storing gear, as well as a hose tower. Directly adjacent to the apparatus bays is a 3,300 square foot office area with a 60 person meeting room, full kitchen, laundry room, office and storage areas, two full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms.
The new site presented some unique challenges, namely dewatering and soil remediation. An existing parking lot area was also removed to make way for the new construction, starting with storm and sanitary sewer.
With any project we undertake here in the city, we are very cognizant of the costs involved. We thank the citizens for entrusting us with their money and we will use it to the best of our ability. Not only is Orion Construction providing us the best bang for our buck, but we were also able to secure an incredibly low interest rate on the bond issuance that is going to save a ton on interest as well.
