Anderson, Eckstein and Westrick have once again teamed with Wing Construction as a design/build team for a new Shelby Township Fire Station No. 4. Currently located on Schoenherr, west of 23 Mile, Station No. 4 was put into service in 1993, and township officials have since determined that the township can best be served by repositioning their station assets.
Station No. 5, also with AEW and Wing Construction serving as the design/build team, was put into service earlier this year, and it’s located on Schoenherr, just north of 21 Mile, in the busy southeast portion of the township. Station No. 4 will serve the growing northeast portion of the township, and the current Station No. 4 will be decommissioned and put up for sale by the township upon the move-in to the new 25 Mile/Schoenherr location in 2018.
The new station will cost just under $2 million, and will include office space, dorm rooms, a kitchen, day room, fitness area, and locker rooms.
