McCarthy has begun preconstruction services on the new 15,000-square-foot College of Southern Nevada (CSN) Fire Station. McCarthy was recently awarded the $5.5 million project by the city of Las Vegas and CSN and will serve as Construction Manager at Risk (“CMAR”) throughout the construction of the project.
Located on the CSN campus at the southwest corner of Torrey Pines Drive and Oakey Boulevard, the new single-story facility will serve a dual purpose of providing 4,000 square feet of classrooms and lecture halls as well as housing a four-bay fire station for the city of Las Vegas.
“Our experience has taught us that getting involved early is the key to getting the project both started and completed on time,” said Ryan Heeter, project director for McCarthy. “We are currently working with the design team to establish project goals and budget considerations. This is a collaborative effort between all parties involved to provide the owner with an accurate design, cost and schedule prior to the start of construction.”
Designed by JMA Architecture Studios, the building features LEED standards that provide energy saving components such as increased day lighting, water efficient landscaping and provisions for the installation of solar panels. Scheduled for completion in the fall of 2010, the new building will be constructed using metal stud framing with an EIFS and Stone exterior finish.
