Fire Station 87 to Get Major Overhaul

_Loakl News 021323

Oakland Park is working hard to enhance the community and build for its second century. The City continues to invest in significant renovations and new construction to improve its facilities and become a more resilient and sustainable community. On the heels of a groundbreaking ceremony for Station 9, the City plans to kick off two phases of extensive renovations to Fire Station 87, located at 2100 NW 39th Street.

  • Phase I of improvements will focus on hardening the structure, which will include the removal and replacement of the roof, windows, exterior doors, apparatus bay doors, and generator. Phase I is in the procurement stage. Song and Associates, Inc. will assist with design services, and State Contracting & Engineering Corp. will serve as the Construction Manager at Risk. 
  • Phase II will include interior improvements and reconfiguring the station layout to improve operational function. There will also be upgrades to the station’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. Phase II is in the design stage.

The guaranteed maximum price for Phase I is $1.7 million. Funding will come from the City’s “Building our 2nd Century” bond program, which 67% of voters approved in 2018. Following the adoption of the bond program, the City did a thorough assessment of the condition of several City buildings, including Fire Station 87. Improvements planned as part of the renovation of Fire Station 87 reflect the recommendations from the condition assessment. 

The City received two grants that will go towards improvements, including a hazard mitigation grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for $450,000 and a Community Development Block Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for $383,744.
