Wake Forest Fire Department #4

Ground-Up

|

Fire & EMS

When Wake Forest Fire Department determined the time was upon them to construct a new fire station to accommodate the tremendous growth in and around Wake Forest, analysis showed they had a very specific area in which they needed to build in order to meet the needs of the community. The constraints of that area necessitated the purchase of a property that–although it met the community’s needs–unfortunately required some very difficult site work, including seeking special approval from the City of Raleigh to extend utilities into a watershed area. The hard work paid off for the Department, as they are now able to fully serve an area which had historically suffered longer-than-desired wait times for service (a survey taken two years after the Station opened showed a decrease in average response time from 10.5 minutes to 3.3 minutes). Focus constructed a 9,542 SF building hosting engine bays, a commercial kitchen, living quarters, lounge areas, and offices to allow the fully staffed Station to serve our community with the excellence they so strongly desire.
