At George Nice & Sons, we have a diverse portfolio of construction projects, and we are thrilled to showcase one of our latest accomplishments: the impressive Staples Mill Firehouse 20.
Spanning an impressive 13,800 square feet, Staples Mill Firehouse 20 stands as a testament to our commitment to excellence in construction. The project encompasses a wide range of specialties, including site/civil work, general construction, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and specialty systems.
Designed with Purpose
Firehouse 20 has been thoughtfully designed with the utmost consideration for the safety and well-being of our dedicated firefighters. Featuring modern amenities, this state-of-the-art facility boasts a day room, fitness area, kitchen, individual bunk rooms, and a spacious meeting space.
Focused on Firefighter Safety
Safety is paramount at Firehouse 20. The design and build incorporated dedicated areas and efficient processes for the handling and decontamination of uniforms, equipment, and gear. The innovative design assists firefighters in seamlessly accessing their essential equipment when every second counts.
Unparalleled Rapid Response
Recognizing the importance of swift action during emergencies, bifold bay doors that open sideways were installed, supporting rapid response times. These advanced doors open approximately 10 seconds faster than traditional overhead doors, a crucial difference in critical situations where seconds matter.
As advocates of environmental responsibility, we proudly constructed Firehouse 20 to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards set forth by the U.S. Green Building Council. Our commitment to sustainability aligns with our dedication to building a greener and more sustainable future.
Henrico's First New Fire Station Since 2018
Firehouse 20 is Henrico's first new fire station since 2018, making it a milestone project that will serve and protect the community for years to come. Our team at George Nice & Sons is honored to have played a pivotal role in this vital addition to Henrico's firefighting infrastructure.
