Project Area Map

Project Description

This Fire Station replaces the original building which was built in the early 1980's. The original station and property has been modified/renovated numerous times through the years. The building is old, inadequate and suffering from chronic water damage, wood rot, and structural weakness.

As part of the Town’s initiative to upgrade facilities, a standard design for Town Fire Stations was developed in the late 1990's. The design includes the ability to withstand some seismic and high wind events and that the stations are built as high as possible due to storm surge and the ability to house additional staff in an extreme emergency. Construction of Fire Station No. 2 should start in September 2016 and will be LEED silver certified. The station is about 8,500 sq. ft. has sleeping facilities for 4 firefighters, a community meeting and training room, weight room, and three bays for fire apparatus and ambulances.

Fire Station No.2 serves Sea Pines.

Project Updates
  • 8/23/2017 - Issuance of a revised Request for Proposal was put on-hold due to the impacts of Hurricane Matthew and remains on-hold indefinitely pending funding direction from the Town Manager and Town Council.
  • 7/20/2016 - The Town of Hilton Head Island has completed its initial review of the two proposals received for RFP 2016-15 Construction of Fire Station Two. Both of the fees reflected in those proposals significantly exceed the fund amount authorized for this project in the current fiscal year budget. Therefore we have no other recourse but to cancel this solicitation. The Town will be meeting with our architect for this project sometime in the next few weeks to re-evaluate our cost estimate for this structure and determine what steps we can take to move forward with a new solicitation. The Town greatly appreciates and respects the time and effort required by those contractors who submitted a proposal for this project. If and when we have further information regarding this project we will ensure those contractors are notified of our intended course of action.
