Visalia Fire Station No. 55 and Training Center

RRM Design Group is providing architecture and engineering services for building and site improvements on an existing greenfield for Visalia’s new Fire Station and Fire Department Training Center. The project includes a new 11,335 sf fire station (a one-story building with two apparatus bays and support spaces, three bunk rooms, kitchen/dining/living spaces, administration offices, an entrance lobby, a training classroom, and support spaces), a new 6,840 sf training building (a two-story, CMU block and concrete, commercial-style building with a four-story stair tower), site training props, and vehicle maneuvering areas. The project completed construction in April 2009. The project construction ended up with a $0 change order rate – and the contractor wrote a check back to the Owner for the full contingency amount.
