Fraser Construction has started construction on the new Beaufort County EMS Station located on Shanklin Road. According to Beaufort County EMS, the 3,715 square foot building is the first to be built specifically for Beaufort County Medical Services. With the relocation of an ambulance to the Shanklin Road site, there will be increased coverage to the area and lowered response time.
The station will house two apparatus bays for first response vehicles as well as five sleeping quarters and a kitchen for personnel. Architect Court Atkins Group took great care in the design of the EMS station. With farmhouse style shutters and handsome sconces for lighting, the station has been designed with the Lowcountry landscape in mind.
“While the Corona Virus has required us to make changes to our daily routine, we are right on schedule with this project,” Joe Fraser, President of Fraser Construction, said.
The projected completion date is in late October 2020.
