A Kenai-based architectural firm has won a contract to provide professional and design services on the new Kasilof fire station.
Kluge and Associates submitted the successful proposal and earned more points in the Kenai Peninsula Borough’s rating system, winning out over four Anchorage-based architects.
The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly awarded the contract to Kluge at the July 11 meeting.
The fire station project consists of providing professional and design services for the new station, which will be similar to the station recently constructed for Kachemak Emergency Services east of Homer.
Kluge’s total fee will be $29,435 and cover the programming-schematic design phase, according to project manager Kevin Lyon.
Lyon said Monday that Kluge already had delivered on designs for the dirt work and bids on that job were to be opened Tuesday. The assembly is expected to award the earth-moving contract at the Aug. 1 assembly meeting.
Final documents for building construction are expected from Kluge somewhere around mid- to late-September. Once that job is awarded, concrete work would likely start almost immediately, Lyon said.
The fire station should be completed and ready for service around the middle of 2007, he said.
