Keller, Inc. to Build for Town of Jackson

In the picturesque setting of Burnett County, Wisconsin, the Town of Jackson embarks on a transformative project that promises to enhance its community services. This ambitious venture includes the construction of a new 6,750 sq. ft. public works garage alongside a 7,000 sq. ft. addition to the existing fire station. The groundbreaking ceremony marks not just the beginning of construction but a new chapter in Jackson’s commitment to providing exemplary services to its residents.


The journey to this pivotal moment began 20 months ago, with Keller leading the charge in planning and design. Faced with the challenge of limited space and the goal to meet the community’s evolving needs, the town’s leadership and its design team embarked on a thorough Discovery or Needs Assessment Process. This collaborative effort aimed to understand deeply the functionality required from these new facilities. Through evaluating various options regarding structure, layout, location, and phasing, the project team navigated the complexities of municipal infrastructure development with an aim towards cost effectiveness.


The planning phase was characterized by consideration of every detail, balancing with fiscal responsibility. Concessions on size and amenities were made to ensure that the dual projects remained within the budget, demonstrating the town’s approach to achieving its goals without compromising financial stewardship. This careful planning culminated in a Yes vote by the Electors, signaling strong community support and confidence in the project’s vision.


Expected to take approximately 10 months to complete, these projects represent a significant investment in the Town of Jackson’s future. The new public works garage will provide a modern, efficient space for maintaining the town’s infrastructure, while the fire station addition will enhance the capability of emergency services to respond to community needs swiftly. This initiative is a testament to the power of community collaboration, strategic planning, and the shared commitment to enhancing quality of life in Jackson.


As the Town of Jackson breaks ground on these crucial projects, it sets a precedent for small towns everywhere, showing that through determination, careful planning, and community support, it is possible to overcome challenges and create a brighter future. This story is not just about building structures but about building a stronger, more resilient community prepared to meet the demands of today and tomorrow.
