Vanir provided project and construction management services for Fire Station No. 6, located in the Loma Vista neighborhood of Clovis, California. Loma Vista is the first of three urban centers being developed in Clovis to accommodate the rapid growth of the Fresno/Clovis metropolitan area. The mission style architecture of the new fire station follows design elements of the new community plan.
The fire station serves approximately 25,000 people and includes:
- Three apparatus bays
- Five sleeping quarters
- An office, kitchen, lounge and workout room
- A maintenance room and turnout room
- A 150-foot communication tower
- Pedestrian paths leading to the City parkway and the new development
Successful bid marketing efforts
Vanir’s marketing efforts resulted in the project receiving a large number of bids, with the three lowest base bids being within $7,500 of each other (very unusual). As a result, the final bid price came in significantly under the estimate.
