Did you consider cheaper options?

Burlington’s new fire station will be built to last 75 or more years. It is an investment in our community’s future. Durable and structurally sound products such as steel, masonry, and precast have higher initial costs, but are more economical in the long-term when considering durability, maintainability, sustainability, operating costs, and the ability to withstand storms and high winds.
