Willow Construction was chosen to expand and rehab the Ocean City Fire Department headquarters. This project consisted of a 2,000 s.f. addition designed to include new conference rooms and offices for headquarters personnel who would be relocating from another facility. Improvements included a complete rehab of the engine bays, staff and officer offices, conference areas, and bunk rooms. The entire facility received new vinyl casement windows, roof replacement, and MEP upgrades.
Project Challenges & Solutions
- Ocean City experienced the wettest spring in 18 years including two 100-year rain events and a tornado.
- Willow and the rest of the team had to improvise during construction to work around the existing Water Tower, unknown buried water lines, and cell tower communications lines above grade.
