Kents Store Fire Station

Kents Store, VA

CMS designed this fire station in-house using conventional construction methods where the apparatus bay was masonry bearing with light gauge metal trusses, and the admin building was stick framed lumber. The main challenge of the project was that the station and the apparatus had to remain in service and in a conditioned space during the construction. Water in the equipment could not be in an unheated environment. Our design allowed the existing station to remain in place and operation, a requirement of the contract while constructing the new apparatus bay. We moved the apparatus, demolished the old station, and built the administration building on site. This solution saved the county $42,000.00 over the estimated cost of their intended design
