L. Keeley Construction Set to Construct New Valley Park Fire Station
VALLEY PARK, MO – DECEMBER 21, 2020 – L. Keeley Construction is proud to partner with JEMA and CRESA to construct a new fire station for Valley Park Fire Protection District. Groundbreaking for the project took place on December 14, 2020.
The L. Keeley Building Team will be constructing a new, 14,672 SF, state-of-the-art facility directly adjacent to the existing fire station, creating a new home away from home. The two-story building will consist of living quarters for the firefighters along with a recreational space and multiple training rooms. Four new vehicle bays will be used to store some of the district’s fire trucks. A mezzanine area will provide ample space for the firefighters to take advantage of while they are occupying the firehouse. The conventional steel frame building will feature a sheet metal rain screen, brick veneer, and a standing seam metal roof.
“L. Keeley Construction is excited to partner with Valley Park Fire Protection District to enhance the Valley Park community with this new Fire Station. We pride ourselves as a community builder and projects like this that improve public safety are especially satisfying.”
-Ryan Perryman, Vice President of Building
