MSA's architects designed the new Minocqua fire station to be built to last 80-plus years
Six years prior, the Town of Minocqua considered remodeling and expanding its existing fire station. MSA prepared preliminary design documents and a cost estimate, but the Town ultimately decided not to proceed with the expansion.
In 2016, the Town decided to construct a new station and purchased land and selected MSA to prepare the design. The 14,536-square-foot station will include a four-bay, double-deep, drive-through apparatus garage with in-floor heat and epoxy flooring. The finished portion of the building will include a training room for 48 people, offices, day room with a break room, fitness area, laundry, SCBA room, workshop, radio room and showers. The building is designed to be an 80-year life building constructed of brick and concrete block exterior walls with a steel roof structure. The building will also be equipped with an emergency generator to power the facility.
The new fire station is scheduled to be completed in November 2017.
