LONDONDERRY — The first phase of the Londonderry Central Fire Station renovation is complete, according to North Branch Construction of Concord.
Phase I included the addition of an equipment bay on the south end of the existing Mammoth Road station along with a 4,620-square-foot addition housing a new entrance lobby, a secure regional dispatch center, administrative offices, break room, conference room, and a training room.
In addition, Phase I of the project included relocation of the station’s flag poles and the department’s “Never Forget” memorial and Last Call bell from the northeast corner of the existing fire station to directly in front of the new administrative entrance.
The building has remained occupied and fully operational, including the critical dispatch center, since the start of the project in November 2018.
Phase II of the project is currently underway and includes an additional apparatus bay on the north end of the building along with a two-story operations addition providing gear storage, a decontamination room, and work, fitness, and living space.
Once complete, the addition and renovation will provide the station with an additional 11,000 square feet, including two additional apparatus bays, a separate decontamination room, expanded training and ADA compliance upgrades, a secure dispatch facility, lighting and HVAC systems upgrades.
Portsmouth-based Port One Architects provided design for the project.
