The new Fire Station 4 at 4201 W. 84th St. recently received an award of excellence from the Minnesota Construction Association, a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for the construction industry.

CNH Architects’s design for the new 25,000-square-foot fire station includes living accommodations. Terra Construction oversaw the building of  the station and submitted the project for consideration in MCA’s award contest.

“Since it opened in August, Station 4 crews have responded to about 2,100 calls, including one nearby,” said Jay Forster, Bloomington’s Assistant Fire Chief. “With the station now staffed 24-hours by full-time and part-time firefighters, the crews arrived on the scene quickly and rescued two people with disabilities. This is just one example of the benefits of the newly constructed fire station.”

Like most of the City’s six fire stations, the previous Fire Station 4 was constructed more than 50 years ago. When Bloomington performed a space needs study for each station. Station 4 became the first for renewal.
