SAI was contracted with the City of Sacramento Facilities Department to provide construction management services and on this critical facility and provided the lead Construction Manager. This 9,300 SF new fire station in the South Natomas neighborhood was a single-story wood framed building featuring new sleeping quarters, a three-truck apparatus bay with bi-fold doors, kitchen, locker room, restrooms, workshop, and communications facilities.  The 1.5-acre site was formally a City park which was demolished and re-graded.

Extensive concrete paving surrounds the building, as well as a backup generator, fuel pump, oil-water separator, and radio tower. The station is a Certified LEED Silver building.
