Lawton-Fort Sill Regional Airport’s fire station has experienced damage due to unknown movement underneath the fire station, reports swoknews.com.
The station opened in early 2020 and now has the interior door showing cracks near the upper corners and the door frame beginning to separate from the wall. Officials are expecting contractors will bear the cost of fixing the damage as the building is so new. The fire station was rebuilt under a $3.9 million construction project awarded to Rich Construction in April 2018.
Airport officials have been working with their engineering firm and a geotechnical firm to isolate the cause of the problem, to include taking core samples from under the building as part of the engineering analysis.
