“Timeless” building meets multiple needs.
Imagine a community that is fast growing, yet has a rich history and a commitment to historic preservation. Put it in the potential hurricane. Add in humidity, subtropical weather and corrosive salt air.
Now, design and build a new fire station for this community that makes a statement, serves firefighters’ needs and keeps taxpayer concerns in mind.
The Bluffton Township Fire District met these challenges and more with its new Fire Station No. 30 in downtown Bluffton, South Carolina. Working with Butler Builder® Fraser Construction Company, LLC, the fire district constructed a new station that delights fire fighters and townspeople alike.
“We wanted a building that was timeless – that could stand for 50 years and still fit with the historic look of our downtown area. Thanks to Fraser Construction and Butler Manufacturing, we definitely achieved that goal,” said John Thompson, Fire Chief of the Bluffton Township Fire District. “We’re received a lot of positive comments from the community.”
