Defreestville Fire Department Celebrates Newly Constructed Firehouse
Alongside more than 125 firefighters, politicians, and local residents, the CSArch project team celebrated the grand opening and formal dedication ceremony of the newly constructed 20,000 square foot Defreestville Fire Station on Saturday, September 17.
“As design professionals, we have an obligation to protect the health, safety, and welfare of a building’s occupants,” said Daniel Woodside, Vice President at CSArch and project team leader. “What strikes me is that, most importantly, we have developed a building that makes the critical and dangerous job of a firefighter a little better, much safer, and something that each one can take great pride in.”
The CSArch design team provided in-house architecture, engineering, construction management, and interior design services.
Twenty years in the making, the North Greenbush Fire District’s new station is a technologically advanced facility that incorporates 10,500 square feet of firematic space, 2,000 square feet of office space, and 2,600 square feet of meeting and training rooms. Approved by voters in 2014, the project cost $6.9 million, $500,000 under budget.
An open house event will take place Tuesday, October 4 at 5:00 p.m. to showcase and offer tours of the new firehouse.
