Town of Keene, New York
On August 28, 2011, Tropical Storm Irene hit the North Country and caused devastation. Not immune to the tragedy was the Keene Fire House which was completely destroyed when a branch of the Ausable River breached its banks and took most of the existing station downstream.
Our design team joined the construction management team led by Hueber Breuer construction and worked in concert with the fire commissioners and town members to provide new site selection, site design, permitting and construction oversight for a new modern fire station facility that will support the region for many years to come.
This project included working with town, state and federal officials in providing backup technical support to assist the project with obtaining state and federal funding. Right to Build permits were applied for and acquired from the Town of Keene Planning Board, The Adirondack Park Association, New York State Department of Transportation, and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
