AP Completes New Fire Station in Greenwood Village, Colorado
Denver, Colo. (May 27, 2016) – Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) proudly completed the new South Metro Fire Rescue Station 31 and helped celebrate with the South Metro Fire Rescue Authority as the first ambulance and fire trucks were brought into the building. Fire fighters and staff members were excited to move into their new station and begin operations.
This new 12,740-sf fire station was built after demolishing their outdated structure. Features of the new facility include seven bedrooms; a state-of-the-art workout facility, kitchen and day-room to accommodate a six-person shift; five bathrooms; two offices and a patio with direct access to the kitchen and day-room. The bedrooms are a great improvement to the quality of living for the staff, as the former facility only had curtain separations between sleeping areas. Honoring the history of fire houses, the facility has a firefighter’s pole from the second story area to the apparatus bay.
The OZ Architecture design is harmonized with the surrounding residential neighborhoods. The truck bay was designed around the inclusion of a water rescue dive boat – an untraditional item for Colorado. The station uses the vessel for emergency responses at the nearby Cherry Creek Reservoir.
“Making our communities safer is at the heart of this project. It is inspiring seeing how excited everyone is to move in”, said Senior Vice President Tom Horsting. The project started in June 2015, completing in 11 months.
A grand-opening celebration is open to the public to tour the facility on June 15th at 3:00 PM, located at 5901 South Havana Street, Greenwood Village, CO 80111.
