Fire Station No. 16 Replacement
This seismic improvement for Fire Station No. 16 (originally built in 1938) is part of the Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response (ESER 2010) bond work to renovate or replace selected fire stations. The ESER 2010 bond passed with 79.4% approval of San Francisco voters in June 2010.
On behalf of the San Francisco Fire Department, San Francisco Public Works has hired Roebuck Construction as the general contractor for the project. The proposed project includes the demolition of the existing building and construction of a new seismically safe fire station with new building and life safety systems, ADA accessibility including an elevator, and other related improvements.
The project is designed to achieve LEED Gold rating for New Construction. The construction began in October 2016, and will take approximately 24 months to complete the work. Fire Station No. 16 will close during construction. Fire service will be uninterrupted during construction, relying on the deployment of apparatus and personnel from nearby Fire Station No. 10 (655 Presidio Avenue) and Fire Station No. 51 (218 Lincoln Boulevard).
