Webster seeking contractor for new fire station
A year after Webster's City Council approved the construction of a $4.89 million fire station, the City of Webster is seeking bids from contractors to oversee building it.
The firm that wins the bid will be expected to consult with the city in the development of the station, from page to brick. Duties include selection of the builder, reviewing design and doing quality checks during construction.
Bids will be accepted until Feb. 17, when they will be made public and reviewed.
The 18,000-square-foot fire station will replace the city's aging 3,500-square-foot Fire Station No. 1 at 17100 Texas Ave., which was built in 1974 and has only 3.5 single bays. It isn't windstorm rated and had to be evacuated during Hurricane Ike. Its sleeping quarters are crowded, and newer fire equipment cannot fit in its bays.
The new station is to have five to six bays, be able to withstand hurricane winds and be energy efficient.
