Mehlville Fire Protection District
Project Size: 41,300 Square Feet Expansion and Renovation of Administration Headquarters and Firehouse #5
Contract Amount: $3,576,901
Finish: Brick and Pre-Cast Exterior
Owner: Mehlville Fire Protection District
Architect: Dickinson Hussmann
This project was built in two phases to accommodate ongoing 24/7 fire and EMS operations. The first phase of this project included a two-level addition of 27,300 sq. ft. with two new apparatus bays; 17 three-bed, gender equity sleeping quarters and restrooms; and new administrative offices for district personnel. Over 30,000 cubic yards of rock had to be removed to put in the basement for the new addition. Special drains were laid to handle a spring discovered under the basement location. An adjacent house was purchased and torn down to make room for the construction of a new detention pond. The two apparatus bays, with 14-foot-high overhead doors, were designed to house the 100-foot platform truck and heavy-rescue trucks as well as other fire equipment. Care was taken to use similar building materials, such as matching limestone and brick, so that the addition would appear contiguous to the original facility. The second phase included the renovation of about 14,000 sq. ft. of the former administrative offices in the aging building. Storage spaces were also addressed. Incorporated into the design was the addition of a new 200kw emergency generator to backup the building’s electrical system within seconds.
