GROUND BREAKING CEREMONY FOR THE CITY OF DECATUR FIRE STATION
A ground breaking ceremony for a new 14,970 sq. ft Fire Station took place on Wednesday, June 10th, 2009 at the intersection of State and Thompson in Decatur, Texas. RBR Construction was awarded the project by the city of Decatur and was selected from a group of 12 other bidders to build the new station for the Decatur Fire Department. The winning bidder was determined using a scoring system with pricing being 50% of the overall score. Construction for the new station is expected to take about 12 months.

The station will also include a day room, kitchen dining facilities for firefighters, a training room to accomodate 30 people, bunk rooms and space for bunker gear and other equipment storage. In addition, there will also be offices for fire administration and the fire marshall. The structure will be built with steel framing and have a stucco and cast stone exterior. The building will feature a steel roof, and will also meet all current environmental standards as a sustainable green building.
