Elkridge Fire Station

North Point Builders was the General Contractor for the new Elkridge Fire Station in Elkridge, Maryland. The original 70 year-old station was “outdated and inadequate”, says Julianna Casey, President of the Elkridge Volunteer Department. The limited living space and lack of turning room in the truck bays were hindering the department’s ability to serve their community quickly and safely. The new LEED Silver rated, two-level facility has reduced emergency response times throughout the county and will continue to help serve the local residents for years to come.

North Point Builders constructed a new 35,000 square foot facility. To hold the multiple fire trucks and emergency vehicles owned by the fire department, 15,000 square feet of the facility was used for a six drive-through vehicle bay. The remaining 20,000 square foot area was built for living quarters, admin offices, a commercial kitchen, community hall, and a four-story training tower. North Point Builders also constructed a new fire and emergency response control center equipped with an 800-megahertz radio system, monitors, encoders and decoders for altering systems, alarm system for sprinklers and fire alarm protection. This equipment allows dispatchers to efficiently communicate with the emergency response personnel and surrounding stations.

Special Qualities

The site chosen by the Fire Department presented challenges through design and construction. The existing site topography consisted of steep grades. The design strategically located all level surfaces for emergency vehicle entrances, parking, and turning access to best fit the contours of the site. North Point Builders and our excavation team coordinated cut and fill operations early in the project to maximize allowable and usable space for construction activity.

During early excavation activities, unsuitable soil was encountered. This unforeseen condition had the potential of significant cost and schedule impact. North Point Builders partnered with a well-known geotechnical firm to evaluate soil conditions and provide remediation solutions. It was ultimately determined the most cost and time effective solution was to utilize a soil-cement process. Despite the added scope of soil remediation, North Point Builders completed the new facility within the original 16 month schedule.
