Local builders create CFA’s new home

CONSIDINE and Johnston are the proud builders of Leongatha’s brand new fire station in Bair Street.
“The new building is a major improvement and has brought our CFA into the 21st century,” Considine and Johnston project manager Gary Bullen said.
Leongatha firm Considine and Johnston won the tender to construct the state of the art station, across the road from the construction company’s office.
“The timeframe for construction was tight but we managed to meet it,” Mr Bullen said.
“The old station has been around for a long time. The new station is modernised.”
Mr Bullen said the architect’s design and the colour scheme came together well.
The station is fully air conditioned for the comfort of volunteers on call, boasts the latest radio and computer networks, and features a low energy rating.
Mechanical ventilation has been implemented to extract fumes from trucks when they return to the station from battling a blaze.
“The station looks good and I’m really pleased for the CFA,” Mr Bullen said.
“I’m especially pleased for the volunteers. They had been operating in a less than superior building and this is very rewarding for them.
“I’m happy the CFA has a bigger, decent facility. It’s been a long time coming.”
CFA members moved into the new station last Tuesday (January 13).
