CTA Construction Commences Groundbreaking For New Hyannis Fire Station
New facility on High School Road will provide much needed upgrades, new Hyannis Fire District headquarters
Hyannis, Mass. (May 9, 2017) – City officials, members of the Hyannis Fire Department, and CTA Construction staff gathered in Hyannis today to celebrate the groundbreaking for the construction of a new fire station. The formal beginning of development on the project comes weeks after CTA was awarded the contract to build the facility after a competitive bidding process involving multiple candidates.
Construction of the new $12 million facility will commence immediately and will occur in three phases. During the first phase, a new fire station will be constructed adjacent the site of the current fire house. Once this construction is complete, the fire department will move into the new facility and the second phase of the project will commence. This phase involves the abatement and demolition of the existing structure. The final phase involves the construction of the last 3 apparatus bays of the new fire station. The entire construction process is expected to last approximately eighteen months.
The new Hyannis fire station will provide improvements over the current structure, which was built in 1965 and lacks the capabilities to support a 21st century fire and rescue service. The new building will comprise two stories, and 32,000 square feet of space to accommodate the new needs of the Hyannis Fire District.
“We’re excited to get to work on what will be a great resource for Hyannis and the surrounding area,” said Jeff Hazelwood, Vice President at CTA Construction. “First responders deserve the most up-to-date facilities and equipment possible, and we intend on constructing a first-class fire station that will serve them well for decades to come.”
