Escondido-based contractor Erickson-Hall Construction has started work on a new fire station in Orange County.
When completed, Stanton Fire Station No. 46 will be a one-story 9,556-square-foot facility with enough room for two fire truck bays. It will have wood siding, stacked stone veneer, a concrete tile roof and an alumawood trellis.
Some of the fire station’s amenities will include automated parking lot gates, an emergency stand-by generator and an apparatus bay vehicle exhaust removal system.
The one-acre station will be sectioned into two lots: one providing crew parking and the other for the fire station and emergency generator.
The $4.3 million project, which was designed by WLC Architects, is expected to be completed in November.
The engineers hired for this project include MSL Engineering, civil; KB Leung & Associates, structural; BP & Associates, mechanical; A&F Engineering, electrical.
The Erickson-Hall project team includes Nathan Complin, construction manager; Joe Weigel, project manager; Ward Beck, superintendent; and Jasen Boyens, project engineer.
Prior to construction starting, the old fire station had to be demolished, since the new one is being built on the same site. In the meantime, a fully functional temporary facility was built on an adjacent property.
