Nokesville Volunteer Fire Station No. 25

High demand in the rapidly growing area of Prince William County required the Nokesville Volunteer Fire Department #25 station to be built on an accelerated timeline of design and construction.

The station exterior is constructed of durable, low-maintenance materials such as metal roofing, brick, pre-cast concrete, and metal clad windows. Other design features such as a skylit dining area, oversized dayroom with fireplace, and large outdoor patio with gas grill were incorporated to successfully recruit new members and families to staff the newly deployed apparatus.

The interiors also consist of durable, easy-to-maintain materials such as masonry partitions, porcelain tile floors, and metal framed windows. Bunk rooms accommodate a total of 24 staff; featuring both gender specific and “flex” bunks; separate bath and locker facilities are provided for men and women. Administrative offices for this multi-station department are on the second floor along with a sub-dividable 80 person training classroom and public restrooms.

Testimonials

“What sticks with me the most when I look back on the entire project is the level of trust we developed in LeMay Erickson Willcox, and I don't say that lightly. When issues arose, we looked for guidance from both you and your team. Without fail we received professional, well-researched information with which to make decisions.”

Andrew Frizzle, Deputy Chief Nokesville Volunteer Fire Department

To date, we have had the pleasure of constructing Nokesville VFD #25 and Antioch Fire and Rescue Station No. 24 ----both exemplary LeMay, Erickson Willcox projects. As Estimator on both projects, I am pleased to complement you on the clarity and accuracy of the Bid Documents. It is obvious that your design team fully understands the needs of a modern day Fire Station; further, your team provides the Bidder the information to clearly prepare the most competitive bids!! As Project Manager on the Nokesville project, your Construction Administration team proved itself to be a vital player to get the job done. Submittals were quickly reviewed and returned, progress meetings were conducted professionally and responsibly and most of all, when the everyday issues arose---your team rolled up its sleeves and pitched in to resolve each item.
