Shawnee Fire Station 74 Drive

Shawnee Fire Station No. 74 is located at 53rd Street and Woodsonia Drive in Shawnee. This project is a part of the city’s Capital Improvement Plan, and prepares the City to better serve the growing community in northwestern Shawnee.

The facility includes two drive-through apparatus bays and accommodates a captain and five firefighters. A featured element of the station are the apparatus bays’ bi-fold doors, which add ease of use and increased safety performance for the firefighters. The building’s exterior includes a combination of EIFS, cast stone and brick, designed to fit in with the neighborhood’s aesthetic.

McCownGordon’s preconstruction team worked diligently at the project’s start to help manage the master budget; ensuring that costs for all of the project’s design fees, furnishings and specialty equipment were accounted for in the City’s budget.
