In the 1960s, Fire Stations 54 and 55 were designed and built. Fire Station 54 is located at 46 Castro Avenue in the Canal neighborhood. Fire Station 55 is located at 955 Point San Pedro Road between Knight Drive and Peacock Drive. Both fire stations are now beyond their useful life. For more information on the project background, please visit the project website.
The project scope entails:
- Remove and replace the original living quarters and roof
- Seismic upgrade of the existing apparatus bay
- Complete recladding and refinishing of the exterior façade with new materials
The projects are to be bid for construction as a single project, beginning with the selection of a general contractor. In January 2021, the City issued the Department of Industrial Relations Labor Commissioner’s Model Pre-Qualification Questionnaire to evaluate contractors and pre-qualify them for this project. This is in order to create a short-list of highly qualified bidders that would then be asked to submit bids for the Fire Station project. A total of 11 contractors pre-qualified for this project. The solicitation can be found on the City of San Rafael Bid Express page. Please note that you will need to register for a free Bid Express account to download project documents.
