Project 2016 Infrastructure work

Tuesday, 11 September 2012

CFA’s Land and Building Services Department report that they have submitted to council a planning permit application for the construction of a new fire station at Rowville in CFA District 13.

The $4.3 million total estimated cost of the project will see the construction of a new six bedroom fire station built on the corner of Wellington Road and Le John Street, Rowville.

It will have the capacity to accommodate up to 6 staff per shift; a 4 bay drive through motor room; a meeting room; a dayroom area; brigade offices ancillary support spaces; training yard, and car park areas.

The new station will replace the current Rowville fire station which is currently located in Taylors Lane.

Subject to council permit approval and the letting of a tender, the Project team anticipates work will begin about November, with completion of the new fire station in late 2013.

Site works begin at Ocean Grove
Meanwhile, construction is also progressing on major modifications to the Ocean Grove fire station near Geelong. The $1.1 million project will upgrade the facility to an integrated fire station. This station will also get six bedrooms and extensions to the utility-turnout area.

Local business has also benefited through the project. The building contract has been let to Geelong firm, MFA Group. Site works have now begun with the anticipated completion date in mid February 2013.

Modification activity is also moving ahead at the Pakenham fire station with the project planned to go to tender in mid-September. Modifications are proposed at the front of the existing building which will be extended out by approximately three metres. This will enlarge the administration and turnout areas. Work is anticipated to start in November with contract completion likely to be in mid-April next year.
