Accomplishments

Integration

Combine a career fire department and township EMS into a single facility. Placed fire and EMS apart to separate different types of response and needs.

Schedule

Meet a compressed time frame for the design and budget to meet the date for the bond referendum. Utilized entire firm and all team resources to meet the schedule.

Maintain the size and scope of the facility while using capital costs for equipment. Analyzed every aspect of the project and then value-engineered where appropriate in order to maintain the budget.

Leadership

Balance the issues and budgets for Fire District and EMS. Worked with the District and Township to balance stakeholder requirements and issues.
