[Excerpt from Broadmoor Bulletin – 3/2014] DC firm, Consys Construction, Inc. was awarded the contract for both firehouses. The process of widening the stone archway as part of Engine Co. 28’s redesign required Consys to construct a steel framework located directly behind the front facade. The new framework now supports the load baring wall. Marmara Inc., specializing in stone masonry, was hired to painstakingly remove each stone, cut & reshape, then reassemble the new widened archway. Engine Co. 28 is certified at the LEED* Gold standard & includes several environmentally responsible features built into to the newly restored structure. A water recovery system collects run-off from the south roof in a 500 gallon holding tank located beneath the back parking lot. The water collected will be used to clean the station fire truck & apparatus. Small plants covering the entire back of the firehouse will reduce the cooling demands placed on the new HVAC system in the sweltering summer months.
