This project will construct a new 18,000 square foot Fire and Rescue facility on 14.36 acres to replace the existing Lucketts Volunteer Fire and Rescue Station.
The station will consist of four pull through apparatus bays, seven 2 person bunk rooms, a training room, restrooms, showers, kitchen and dining areas, supply storage, a gear and hose drying area, fitness room, offices and a repair shop.
The facility is designed to achieve LEED Gold designation.
Funding for land acquisition for the fire station replacement was provided in FY 2013 in the Land Acquisition Fund.
The project is estimated for completion in the winter of 2021.
Current Status: April 2020
Crews will complete structural concrete masonry unit block walls and structural steel by the end of this month.
Work on site grading, storm water ponds and erecting supporting structures will continue as weather permits.
Electrical work has begun, including the rough installation of the electrical wiring, boxes, fixture mounts and breaker panels.
Work to pour the concrete slab and install exterior systems that protect the structure from the weather is currently scheduled to begin in May 2020.
