Ivy Road Fire Station

Project Summary

Timmons Group provided civil engineering design services to Albemarle County for the Ivy Road Fire Station, including the design of site layout, grading, utility services, retaining walls and storm water management, and obtaining site plan approvals. The project required close coordination with the County Office of Facilities Development, Fire and Rescue, and Community Development departments.

The county decided to renovate an old warehouse owned by the University of Virginia instead of building new, which helped them realize significant cost savings. The fire station will serve the urban area west of Charlottesville, with 500 homes within a 5 miles radius of its location.
