New Uses for Four Fire Stations

(Fort Point Consulting, Architect and Project Manager)

New Uses for Four Fire Stations is a comprehensive study done for the City of Springfield, Massachusetts in the spring of 2014. The study is part of the City's effort to find qualified buyers for these beautiful historic buildings. It uses Fort Point's well-regarded holistic methodology which incorporates code, zoning, historic, construction, proforma, market, and financing inputs. The result is a "words/numbers/pictures" analysis of numerous potential development options.

Richard Graf, Fort Point’s Principal, has managed projects with construction budgets ranging from $100,000 to over $30,000,000. Most have been renovations, often historically certified. FPC is versed in all typical construction technologies, including masonry, concrete, steel, and frame construction. Fort Point also has extensive experience managing complex tax credit partnerships. We have provided project management services for the following property types:

  • Office, Speculative, and Build-to-Suit
  • Tenant Fit-Out
  • Residential, Rental and Condominium
  • Condominium Conversion
  • Assisted Living
  • Artist Live/work and Studio Space

FPC’s background includes both global development management, and representation of the owner in the design/budget/construction process. In all cases FPC remains aware of the interplay of the four main development forces:

  • Legal / Governmental
  • Design / Construction
  • Finance
  • Marketing

A change in one impacts the other three. Fort Point has the experience to foresee these impacts, and to make educated decisions that keep a project on schedule and budget, while maintaining quality and market appeal.
