Fire Station No. 39 will provide faster response times in the Stapleton neighborhood.

PCL Construction recently topped out the Northfield Fire Station No. 39 at Central Park Boulevard and 50th Avenue in the Stapleton neighborhood. The fire station, which is scheduled for completion in May, will provide faster response times to surrounding neighborhoods and schools while continuing to address the increased need for safety facilities in the growing Denver metro area.

The Northfield Fire Station is the result of a five-party agreement that includes the city and county of Denver, Denver Public Schools, Park Creek Metro District, Denver Urban Renewal Authority and Forest City. It was designed by OZ Architects.

“During the past three years, there has been a growing need for more fire stations that can provide faster response times to the metro area’s ever-increasing population,” said Steve Kovach of PCL Construction, which recently built Fire Station No. 35 at Denver International Airport. “We’re pleased to be working with all of the parties involved in this significant and important new safety facility and bring our construction expertise to the project. Having reached this important milestone, we’re looking forward to a successful completion later this year.”

The new fire station will provide the Denver Fire Department with all of the critical lifesaving needs and systems in a state-of-the-art facility, while also providing a comfortable living environment to firefighters and a welcoming addition to the community.
