The reconstruction of Fire Station No. 1 continues to make progress.
Demolition of the original station was completed in March and hazardous material abatement, site grading, and foundation compaction is now complete.
The building foundation has been constructed using one inch diameter steel bars and 3,750 psi concrete containing up to 1.5” aggregate rock.
Construction of masonry block walls for interior and exterior partitions has begun, and reinforced steel bars are in place. Grout for the block walls is scheduled for sometime this week.
The steel reinforced concrete floor slab is next to be constructed and the building will continue to go vertical from there.
Construction is tentatively scheduled for completion in Spring of 2018.
