Bernardston (MA) Officials and Fire Department Seek to Change Fire Station Design

The fire department has talked with town officials about amending designs to the fire station, reports Greenfield Reporter.

Firefighters would like to expand a hallway to allow room for gear lockers. The board hopes to receive an updated plan and a more accurate cost estimate from the architect.

The cost to renovate the old station on its own is comparable to including it in the work for the new station, and the town will seek bids for one project incorporating both buildings. 

Estimates to renovate the existing fire station are between $200,000 and $300,000, including installation of a sprinkler system, which is projected to cost between $25,000 to $30,000. Under the proposed design plans, the new building would have a four-bay garage.

Older plans had considered moving the fire station, but officials want to keep the fire station in the center of town.
