Wright Construction Group, construction manager for the new San Carlos Park Fire District Station 54, broke ground recently. Located on Oriole Road near RaceTrac, the new station is slated to begin construction immediately.
The facility will total nearly 10,000 square feet and include three apparatus bays, sleeping quarters for on-duty crews, a storage tank to supplement the fire protection service and a backup power generator. It will also include a stand-alone training tower and a large training room within the station itself. The company will work closely with subcontractors and suppliers to ensure the project is delivered ahead of schedule and under the district budget.
“We have seen exponential growth in the area population, along with the addition of many new businesses and residential communities,” said Fred Edman, president of Wright Construction. “The much-needed station will provide a great service and faster response times to residents throughout San Carlos Park.” The companies main office is at 5811 Youngquist Road in Fort Myers.
