Madeira & Indian Hill Joint Fire District


Madeira Fire Station Construction Underway

Building construction has begun at the Madeira Fire Station site after a short delay to complete site clearing and preparation and a budget re-assessment.

The site work was accomplished under budget and included razing the old buildings, grading, construction of a retaining wall, installation of an underground surface and building runoff retention system and repair /replacement of an underground / collapsed MSD connector.

The building itself was originally estimated 18 months ago and actual bids for the many areas of construction work needed came in higher than estimated.  Review of building materials, architectural approach and style and construction methods, often termed “value engineering” was undertaken and decisions made to reduce costs without sacrificing station functionality.

Current schedule has the station competed and occupied by June 1, 2016.
