New garage gives Fauquier community two new assets

The new Fauquier Community Emergency Services Garage became more of a reality once the foundation works rose above the surface.

The new Fauquier Community Emergency Services Garage became more of a reality once the foundation works rose above the surface.

After weeks of ground works in the often sodden clay soil, with the drainage ditches filling with water as fast they could be excavated, “suddenly” the forms were off and everyone could see the building’s foundation walls and get a sense of the complete footprint. Ray Kula and crew along with many local sub-trades work around and through the unsettled weather in an effort to keep on schedule.

Framing will be completed soon and then wet weather will be far less of a problem for everyone. The new two-bay building will house both FVFB fire trucks and all their main equipment, freeing up the old one-bay garage building to house all the Fauquier Community Club’s outdoor equipment, from mowing tractors to BBQs, under one roof with easy access.

The old building will also be able to serve as a multi-purpose facility during community events held on the adjacent tennis court/ice rink. Re-purposing the old fire truck garage this way means that there will be two new assets for the Fauquier community.
