Pavone Construction, Timmons Group and PWC build 19,000 s/f Fire and Rescue Station
Manassas, VA — On Saturday, January 2nd, the Prince William County Fire and Rescue System welcomed the opening of its newly constructed Groveton Fire and Rescue Station 22 located at 7500 Century Park Dr. in Manassas.
Located on the west end of the county, the 19,000 s/f facility was built by Pavone Construction, in cooperation with the Timmons Group, a structural design engineer firm, and PWC’s Facilities Construction Management. The station will house approximately 45 career staff providing 24-hour coverage on an Engine, Rescue, Medic Unit (Advanced Life Support ambulance) and Collapse Unit. The building’s design, by LeMay Erickson Willcox Architects with assistance from fire and rescue’s design committee, encompasses sleeping quarters, a kitchen, dayroom, physical fitness room, training room, storage for technical rescue equipment, and offices. In addition, the station has four drive through apparatus bays, a personal protective equipment storage area, and a decontamination “decon” corridor. The station’s design and strategic location will help to increase the level of service provided to the citizens of Prince William County. Citizens, businesses, and visitors within the station’s first due area will experience improved response times, which will help alleviate the burden on existing stations.
