At its Feb. 23 meeting, McKinney City Council entered in a contract with architecture firm Martinez Architects LP to design and construct the new headquarters, which will be located at 2100 Taylor Burk Drive in McKinney.
The contract states the scope of services should not exceed $2,296,800 and a contingency amount of $200,000. The firm was chosen among 13 applicants for the job, city staff said.
The new fire department headquarters will feature offices for the fire chief, department administration, fire department operations, the fire marshal and fire prevention, and emergency management will be located there as well, staff said.
Part of the headquarters facilities will include an emergency operations center, a logistics facility and a fire station, with spatial considerations for education programs.
The headquarters will be located on a 9.7-acre site at 2100 Taylor-Burk Drive, McKinney. The layout of the building will be determined by the Martinez Architects team as it moves through its process, officials said.
Once the fire department services have moved into the new headquarters, the existing public safety building on Community Avenue will be the headquarters for the police department facilities.
