Description
Kensington (Aspen Hill) Fire Station #25 is an eXisting 12.000 square foot facility at 14401 Connecticu1 Avenue serving a densely populated
area. This project provides for an additional 13,443 square feet for a Battalion Chiefs operational office, increased administrative offices,
donnitory space, and living and dining areas, two new apparatus bays and associated storage areas. A renovation of the existing interior
finishes and a HVAC replacement are also included in the project.
Location
14401 Connecticut Ave, Silver Spring
Estimated Schedule
Design is complete through 80% construction documents. Final design
will
begin in FY16 and
will
be updated to new codes. The bidding
'and construction process will begin In FY17.
.
Cost Change
Increase is due to new Code requirements and escalation.
Justification
The eXisting fire station was constructed in 1988. The growth in the Aspen
Hill
area has put a greater demand on this fire station. The
current facility is lacking space for the number of career firefighters and command officers assigned
to
this location, as well as sufficient
space for fire apparatus. Plans and studies include the Fire; Rescue, Emergency Medical Services, and Community Risk Reduction Master
Plan. October 2005 and the Station Location and Resource Allocation Study Report, September 2006.
Other
Sufficient land exists on the existing property for the addition.

Fire Department, Mid-County Regional Services Center, Washington Gas, Maryland-National Capitol Park and Planning CommiSSion.
