Holland Construction Services, Inc. (Holland) recently joined with the Glen Carbon Fire Protection District and community leaders at a ground breaking ceremony for a new fire station in Glen Carbon.
The new 19,531 square-foot building will replace Station #1 built in 1957. It will be constructed on the baseball field directly behind the current station located at 199 South Main Street.
The Fire Protection District is building the new station to better serve the district’s growth and the expansion of the EMS services.
The new building will include 5 bays, living quarters for fire and EMS crews, a training room and administrative offices. Once construction is complete, demolition will take place on the existing structure.
“This is an exciting project for the Glen Carbon Fire District,” said Miranda Stevens, Project Manager with Holland. “The design of the building had feedback from several of the firefighters who will use this building every day. We are excited to be part of the team and look forward to a successful project.”
White and Borgognoni is the architect on the project. Work on the new fire house is scheduled to be complete in late spring of 2019.
