City of Fort Atkinson Fire Department
Location: Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin
Building Type: Remodel & Addition
Project: 21,000 Sq. Ft. Fire Station Multistory Phased Addition & Remodel
The existing facility was designed to house a smaller staff and less equipment. Although this did provide necessary space at the time, the current staff and equipment requirements have rendered this space inadequate.
The planning between the Fort Atkinson Fire Department, and the Keller, Inc. Construction Management team began in 2017. Throughout the planning phase, Keller worked closely with the city to gain community support with a unanimous vote from the city council approving the construction project. Unique to this project is the fact that the department required the design to accommodate staying on the existing site, keeping the department operational during construction, and utilizing as much of the existing building as possible.
