Plans to reconstruct Friendswood's Fire Station No. 2, located at 2605 W. Parkwood Drive, are officially underway.

It was reported at the Dec. 6 Friendswood City Council meeting that 100% of the construction documents have been delivered to the city, according to agenda documents. Construction is estimated to start in May 2022.



Architectural engineering for the building began in September 2020, as previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper. The guaranteed maximum price for the project will be presented at the Jan. 10 council meeting. In February, it was estimated that the project would cost approximately $4.1 million against a $4 million budget.

The preliminary floor plan for the new fire station includes three apparatus bays, a gate that leads to parking and training equipment behind the station, dorms, a kitchen, a shower, and a laundry room, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported. The floor plan is a result of a needs assessment from the fire department, city engineers and other stakeholders.
