Renovations Begin on Fire Station

A remodeling and expansion project to revamp Escondido Fire Station No. 4 began this week.

Escondido-based Erickson-Hall Construction is in charge of the $2.56 million design-build project that will consist of increasing the station’s living quarters with five dorms, including space to accommodate female firefighters. The kitchen area also will be remodeled.

The fire station will now have three apparatus bays to house an ambulance and extra fire truck.

The station is being expanded and remodeled to improve emergency response coverage and services to Escondido residents, according to the city.

Jeff Katz Architecture was hired to be the design consultant on this project. Parterre Landscape Architecture was also hired for this job.

Project engineers include Nasland Engineering, civil; Orie 2 Engineering, structural; McParlane & Associates, mechanical; Construction Testing & Engineering, geotechnology; and Elen Consulting, electrical.
