During the Monday, May 17, 2021, City Commission meeting, Commissioners approved an agreement with EAPC Architects Engineers to design and construct the new West Fargo Fire Departments Headquarters at 1201 10th Ave. E. The goal is to complete the Headquarters by spring 2023.
The West Fargo Fire Department received seven responses to the request for proposal for design and construction services. The proposals were reviewed by a committee to identify three finalists based on experience, design methodology, availability, local experience and ability to meet deadlines.
Finalists presented to the committee, which included Commissioner Mark Simmons, Commissioner Mandy George, Fire Chief Dan Fuller, Fire Deputy Chief of Operations Kendel Frost, City Administrator Tina Fisk and Building Inspections Administrator Mark Housh. After discussion, EAPC Architects Engineers was selected to move forward.
“EAPC stood out because of their local focus with a statewide reputation of building fire stations,” said Fuller. “These qualities will help us meet our goals to improve emergency responsiveness in West Fargo and will house all the command staff in one building.”
The West Fargo Fire Department will move into the building’s design phase, which will focus on the building’s functionality.
