Fire Station 11: Vancouver, Washington
With high growth in the Orchards-Sifton neighborhood of Vancouver, WA, the City planned the addition of a Fire Station in the area to maintain their standards of quick call times and great service to the community.
Capital Project Support to Quickly Complete a First Responder Facility
The City’s Capital Projects team was already stretched thin delivering a separate, robust construction program as construction of Fire Station 11 approached, leading to a need for construction support. Otak recommended effective ways to not only augment their capacity but amplify their impact. The construction management team built a plan focused on using the right information to add the right skills in the right place at the right time. Operating as an extension of the City’s team, Otak’s construction manager and inspector integrated their approach with established processes, tools, and culture. In completing construction on-time and within budget, Fire Station 11 was able to begin serving the community on schedule.
