The headquarters building for East Grand Fire District #4 recently received a facelift courtesy of Castle Rock-based MW GOLDEN CONSTRUCTORS (MWGC). The 10,500 square foot remodel of administrative office space and classroom space was completed August 8th. MWGC performed a complete demolition of the existing office space and the supporting mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. New systems were installed within the reconfigured office space. The boiler for the hydronic heating system was also replaced. A key feature of the remodel was the use of beetle kill pine for paneling, a display case, and ceiling clouds. Finishing touches included a new aluminum canopy above the station’s main entrance.
The station, located between Winter Park and Frasier on US Highway 40, held an open house on August 9th. The community was able to tour the station’s new features in addition to taking rides in the department’s antique fire engine. Kids could play target practice with a fire hose, and parents enjoyed free car seat checks.
“East Grand Fire Protection District did a great job putting on a fun event. The firefighters work hard and provide a vital public service, and it was great to see so many in the community show up to support them and to check out their remodeled station,” said MWGC project manager Mike Weber.
MWGC has completed numerous projects in Grand County. Renovations to Henderson Mill were completed in 2011, and remodeling to Grand Lake’s golf course clubhouse was delivered in 2009. The Juniper Library in Grand Lake was a 2006 project which featured log and native stone construction.
