Highly anticipated Whitesville Fire Station officially begins construction

Charleston, S.C.— On Wednesday, May 22nd, leaders and members of the community celebrated the official ground breaking for the Whitesville Fire and Rescue Headquarters Fire Station.

Mashburn Construction will be building a single story 5,680 SF fire station with an additional 3,712 SF garage to house 2 fire trucks. The main wood-framed building features a conference room, offices, bunk rooms, kitchen, showers, locker rooms and a decontamination room. The pre-engineered metal garage will be equipped with its own exhaust system to safely house fire trucks. The highly anticipated fire station will service residents and businesses in just under a 50-mile radius; an area that has experienced heavy growth and development over the last several years.

Mashburn was awarded the contract in the fall of 2018 and has been working with the fire department and county staff as they secured a $3 million grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). McMillan Pazdan Smith is the Architect on the project and Thomas & Hutton is providing civil engineering services. Within the next few weeks, concrete will be poured, and the beginnings of a new fire station will be visible.

“We are happy to officially be breaking ground on the new Whitesville Fire Station. Our team has already begun executing an aggressive timeline, despite the initial setbacks including a government shutdown. We look forward to building a facility to better serve the safety needs of this growing community,” says Paul Mashburn, CEO of Mashburn Construction.

In addition to the Whitesville Fire and Rescue Headquarters Station, Mashburn Construction Company has built several public safety complexes throughout South Carolina. The company continues to grow their portfolio in public sector projects as well as multiple other markets.
