The Charlotte Fire Department is requesting a new contract for fencing installation services. Work to be performed under this contract is to furnish and install an approximately 960’x 8′ tall ornamental aluminum fence with four (4) single gates. The location of the fence will be in the back parking lot of the Charlotte Fire Department Headquarters.
Firehouse #30, currently located at 4707 Belle-Oaks Drive, near Charlotte Douglas Airport, is currently located in a house built in 1955 and needs extensive renovations. The facility is the only firehouse where crews must leave their living quarters to access their apparatus, as a result, in impacting response time.
Firehouse #30 design services with the use of Advance Planning funds will be utilized to build a replacement 3-bay 2-story firehouse to manage response volumes in the Beam Road/Airport area. The new facility will be approximately 14,000 square feet. The building will be located at 3019 Beam Road, directly across from the Police and Fire Academy, and the parcel ID number is 141-24-104. It is located in Council District 3. The firehouse design will be the same floor plan design as Hidden Valley Firehouse #45 (HVFH#45). This project is also designated to be an all-electric firehouse and additional scope will be added.
Project includes the installation of a crossing gate arm over 6th St. at the Lynx Blue Line in coordination with the 6th St. cycle track currently under construction by the Uptown Cycle Track project.
