KCK Fire Station
About this Project
Client: Unified Government of Wyandotte County & Kansas City, Kansas
Architect: ArchImages, Inc.
Location: Kansas City, Kansas
Size: 10,200 square feet
Haren worked with the Unified Government of Wyandotte County & Kansas City, Kansas (UG) to construct a fire station located at Leavenworth Road & Hutton Road. The 10,200 square foot fire station is new construction and features two drive-through apparatus bays and one half apparatus bay. The station also features a decontamination room, individual bunk rooms, a fitness center, kitchen/dining space, and a gear locker room.
The original design of the fire station had everything that the UG wanted in their new station, but the preliminary budget to build the station was higher than what they had available. Haren and ArchImages worked together to reorganize the original design. The goal of the reorganization was to keep as many elementals as possible from the original design. The overall square footage of the station was decreased, and the mezzanine level was reorganized to house the mechanical room on the second story. These minor adjustments to the design brought the overall fire station into the budget requirements for the UG.
Haren completed the fire station on time and was able to save $58,000 on the construction that was returned to the Unified Government. Those funds were then used by the UG to sod the area surrounding the fire station. This was a “want” that the UG had eliminated from the budget previously.
“Our team worked with Haren Companies to budget and construct our fire station. The Haren team was able to lead us through the entire process and complete the fire station on time and under budget.
During pre-construction, the Haren team helped us understand the cost of construction and make smart choices with the funds we had available.
The Haren team was able to flexibly overcome obstacles throughout the construction of the new fire station. Communication was important and frequent throughout the entire process.
Haren Companies were able to deliver a quality product that will keep our first responders and the community safe for years to come.”
