Civic: Fire Department

Slinger Fire Department

2013 Completed Project: Slinger, WI

The Slinger Fire Department partnered with MSI General to DESIGNBUILD an 8,474 sq. ft. addition to their existing building. Classic architectural features such as column canopy entries, arched windows with soldier course brick and keystone, brick banding, and an elevated main entry were used to accentuate the new addition. A history wall was created at the main entrance to proudly display an antique fire truck. All areas of the existing building were tied together into one comprehensive design to maintain continuity throughout the building. Another tribute to the past was paid with an antique bell displayed with the flag poles at the building’s exterior front entrance.

“Our fire department and building committee were not experienced in the process of building such a complex structure in conjunction with using part of the existing building. Our committee included people in the trades, but we needed the MSI General team to bring the project together – on time and on budget. From the first proposal, to the final punch list corrections, we were always handled in a professional manner. As the committee chairman, I was always extended an understanding ear by every MSI department, no matter how frequent or simple my inquiries. I am sure you had many people behind the scenes coordinating a project of this complexity. We received numerous compliments from our citizens and from outside our village on how this structure fits into the residential neighborhood. Also, we met the initial timeline and came in $114,000 under budget, and that included almost $250,000 of loose items we bought and MSI General had no control over. Great job MSI General!” Ken Reiser, Fire Fighter at the Slinger Fire Department
