Completion

2010

MSA Consulting, Inc. provided the Surveying, Preliminary and Final Civil Design, Dry Utility Coordination, Cost Estimating, Bidding and Negotiation and Construction phases of the new 7,700 sq. ft. single story fire station and corporate yard located on Frances Hack Lane in the city of La Quinta.

The existing fire station was modified to temporarily house administrative offices, in addition to site work, decent storage facility of street sweeping, bulk storage, covered parking and a photovoltaic system. The $6.8 million project incorporates a variety of sustainable measures such as low water use landscaping, recycled content finish materials, and photovoltaic solar panels on the carports. State-of-the-art features at the new station include an exhaust gas capture system that removes cancer-causing vehicle emissions and vents them directly outside the building and a high-performance commercial “extractor” washing machine that removes poisons and carcinogens from firefighters’ protective clothing.
