Construction of the new Fire Hall for Barrington Port La Tour Fire Department is currently underway. With the footing already in place, the contractor is getting ready to pour concrete for the floor late this week or early next week.
The building will be capable of holding four fire trucks in the truck bay, 40 feet wide and 90 feet long. The side portion of the building which will be 20 feet wide and 90 feet long will house the office, radio room, meeting room, washrooms, showers, storage room, electrical room and gear storage room.
Parsons ICF Construction came in with the lowest bid at $774,900.00. The total cost of the building, land and preparation work will be around $900,000.00. The members are looking forward to having a new hall and moving in, in the early summer of 2016.
We will keep you updated on the progress of the building.
