City selects architecture firm to design Fire Stations
The Lewisville City Council has hired Brown Reynolds Watford Architects to serve as architects for the design of Fire Stations No. 3 and No. 8.
The Dallas-based architecture firm designed Fire Station No. 7, 1070 Texas Street, and the Jerry R. Galler Public Safety Training Center, 701 Treatment Plant Road.The City is paying BRW Architects $770,800, which is approximately 9.6% of the estimated construction cost of $7,975,800. The set fee will not change regardless of actual construction costs.
The fire department has funding to begin design of two new fire stations in Fiscal Year 2016-17. Lewisville voters approved the relocation of Station 3 as part of the 2015 bond program. It is being relocated from 195 Corporate Drive to Round Grove Road in an effort to improve response times to the growing southwestern part of the City. Funding was also approved in the Fiscal year 2016-17 Fire Control District to add an eighth fire station on Josey Lane to better serve east Lewisville and Castle Hills.
The projected timeline for the projects is based on the Construction Manager at Risk being selected by the end of February, and BRW completing the construction plans by the end of June. Construction would begin in September, and be completed by September 2018.
