Greenwich Fire Chief Siecienski gave an update on the progress of the fire station at the public safety complex in central Greenwich this week. In an interview with Tony Savino on WGCH 1490, Chief Siecienski said the construction heating plan has been approved and is operating on the inside the building. The temporary heaters necessary for the concrete block work to continue through the winter are up and running. Hallways and rooms are beginning taking shape.
“Things are looking good,” he said. “The hallways are up, and there is a lot of utility work including electrical and alarm systems under way.”
On “police alley,” behind the senior center, Siecienski said the limestone facade is going up. “We had previous limestone cut and resized and tested and it’s beginning to be mounted on the exterior wall,” he said of the nod to limestone from the original fire house that was demolished. Siecienski said they’ll continue to mount the limestone on the facade depending on the weather.
Chief Siecienski said with luck the project will be completed in time for the 2016 holiday season. He said the lease at Holly Hill for the administrative offices of the fire marshals and training division goes through December, 2016.
