This fire station was converted from an old factory. The building sat idle for years until the township. trustees found grant money to renovate. This project was an extensive demolition job interior and exterior as well. We removed a great amount of existing concrete floors for plumbing trenches, foundations for the new masonry walls, and truck bays with trench drains.
We cut out the front masonry for 3 overhead doors for the fire truck bays, and added one overhead door to the rear of the building for the township. road trucks. Poured a new concrete drive out front. We filled in some of the old overhead doors with new siding. Painted the entire exterior of the building. We also removed an old office building to make way for the new concrete parking lot.
Interior consisted of new masonry walls to house the fire station, township trustees a large meeting room. We added structural steel for 2 mezzanines which a large portion of that for a 2nd floor Meeting room and relaxing area for the firemen. The other mezzanine was for mechanical and storage area.
