The Byram (CT) fire station renovation is almost complete, reports Patch.com. The concrete floor was poured last week, and crews are preparing to move in during July.
The Greenwich Fire Department’s Engine 3 and its full-time firefighters were moved to the temporary station on Horseneck Lane, while the volunteers were operating out of headquarters on Havemeyer Place.
Construction on the nearly 70-year-old building began last summer. The interior was stripped and remodeled to code, and it was made more energy-efficient. The day room and kitchen were expanded, and the upstairs area was improved as well, along with the addition of office space.
In addition, the two middle bays are now a drive-through from Delavan Avenue through the back of the building. In a nod to its 1952 design, the building’s facade is being preserved.
The completion of the building coincides with the Byram Volunteer Fire Department’s 125th anniversary. Officials say after everyone is back there will be an anniversary celebration with an official reopening and re-dedication of the building.
