L.R. Costanzo constructed this attractive 16,000 square foot masonry and steel structure to provide the Village of Hancock with a state-of-the-art fire station. This station offers volunteers a physical fitness center, kitchen and recreation areas. The station will also be used as a command center during emergencies; office and storage for the emergency response team is also included.


  • Project constructed during one of the wettest summers on record
  • Site grading did not match plans and required solutions for standing water collecting in the parking lot.
  • Roof truss contractor defaulted two days before starting work causing approval and construction delays.


  • Close schedule coordination with multi-prime contractors and “readjusting” scheduled tasks to take advantage of good weather
  • L.R. Costanzo project team closely coordinated with the engineers and architect on site to expeditiously resolve issues
  • Awarded contract to another contractor to field fabricate and erect the trusses mitigating a major schedule delay


L.R. Costanzo experts also coordinated or installed:

  • Discovered and removed unexpected unsuitable soils
  • Radiant heat (under slab) heating systems
  • Coordinated the other prime contractors to expedite work
  • Provided value engineering to the architect and engineer to help the volunteer fire department obtain all required items at the best value
