Protecting and serving the Lowcountry community since 1959, the St. Johns Fire District recently celebrated the completion of the department’s newest fire equipment maintenance facility on Johns Island, the Choate Construction Company said in a Facebook post May 10.

Choate Construction partnered with St. Johns Fire District and Construction Dynamics Inc. to bring a fully-equipped fire equipment maintenance facility to the St. Johns’ district, charlestonbusiness.com reported.

Following a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony, this single-story, pre-engineered building will further bolster the SJFD’s emergency services as it continues to protect and serve the community, according to a news release.

“It’s an honor to work alongside the SJFD and Construction Dynamics to support our first responders and their life-saving efforts through this facility,” says Tim Heichelbech, Vice President and Division Manager for Choate’s Charleston office.

This pre-engineered 10,000-square-foot building will have three drive-through bays with 14-feet-by-14-feet overhead doors leading to a vehicle service and storage area. Additionally, the facility offers a locker room, showers, restrooms, a kitchen and dining area, IT room, training areas, and storage.

The project team worked closely with Charleston County, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, and the South Carolina Department of Transportation to ensure success in meeting zoning ordinances and codes needed for this facility, the release stated.
