Fire Station 123 Johnson County
Ready to serve in Johnson County
The new fire station in Edgerton, Kansas, isn’t any old fire station. This place is not only gorgeous but also primed for a new era of public service.
Johnson County Fire Station No. 123, a $7.7 million facility, boasts an impressive 28,000 SF of space to plan, train, grow, and respond. It features more than 12,000 SF of administrative space, which is unusually large for a fire station. It also includes a dedicated sheriff’s area.
The facility exterior is a combination of stone, CMU, brick, and masonry.
Inside is a combination of CMU masonry, metal sub-framing, and drywall. The admin side, which features a complete audio/video room that seats 30 people and a fully functional kitchen, was built with metal stud construction and polished concrete floors.
While this new fire station is impressive, the most important aspect is its service to what was an underserved community. This new station will help save lives.
Governor Laura Kelly said:
“With this new station, the equipment to help, and the leadership to guide them, Johnson County Fire District #1 is primed and ready to continue answering the call, whether right here in Johnson County – or across the state.”
Crossland did have to overcome a variety of unique challenges during the project.
Remember that old song “Blame It On the Rain?” Yeah. Multiple days of heavy downpour damaged the waterproofing membrane on the station exterior, which required Crossland to repair and replace 60 percent of that membrane and about 2,000 SF of brick and stone.
Then, of course, there were the multitude of challenges brought on by Covid. Metal and material delays, budget issues, time issues. You name it.
Through it all, though, Crossland kept its focus on cutting costs wherever possible. The relationship between the Crossland team and the station owner was fantastic, and the project was delivered on budget and on schedule.
