Fire Station 1 - James City - Bruton Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad

March 31, 2014

Scope of Work

The James City - Bruton Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad in Toano was originally built on the former Toano High School site. The existing fire station will be replaced with a new 21,791-square foot station consisting of five, pull-through, double loaded apparatus bays for emergency vehicles, an adjacent tower for training and hose drying, a large training room and an adjacent commercial kitchen to serve the public during community meetings . Site improvements include an emergency vehicle return drive aisle, relocated fueling station, relocated metal storage building, additional parking and an improved on-site storm-water management system. In addition, training elements will be built-in throughout the facility to provide on-site training opportunities,minimizing the need for costly off-site training. New administrative offices will be included for the volunteer firefighters, career firefighters and rescue squad. The bunk space will accommodate up to 20 individuals on a typical night. Upon completion of the new facility, the existing station will be demolished. This project is intended to be designed and constructed for LEED Silver certification.
