Construction of a new fire station in Canyon Creek should be complete by early next summer, according to Richardson Fire Department Chief Curtis Poovey.
Steel beams are in place, and most of the foundation has been poured, Poovey said. Core Construction was waiting to install the interior floors until the heat subsides, which should reduce the chance of excessive cracking, Poovey said.
The 13,200-square-foot station was designed by BRW Architects and will sit at the northwest corner of Lookout Drive and Custer Parkway. It will include three garages, nine sleep rooms for personnel and two officer suites.
Project engineer Brad Bernhard told City Council earlier this year that the additional station was necessitated by increased development in the area as well as by enrollment growth at the nearby University of Texas at Dallas.
