Eriksson Engineering Associates, Ltd. (EEA), worked with FGM Architects on the design of the new 43,887-square-foot Oswego Fire Protection District headquarters.
The Oswego FPD sought to replace the existing 30-year-old facility with a new, much larger station to hold all of the district’s resources in a centralized location.
EEA’s team of civil engineers designed all of the utilities, paving, and grading for the new station. Adjacent to the site was land designated for future development of the Oswego Police Facility and Safety Town. To accommodate the needs of the new fire station and the proposed police station EEA provided stormwater detention, a sanitary sewer extension, and a watermain extension for both sites.
The new station was built with six small bays, eight apparatus bays, and one maintenance bay linked through a single discharge route.
EEA’s team also coordinated the site design through the Village of Oswego, Fox Metro Water Reclamation District, Kendall County Highway Department, the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
