Pflugerville, Texas (August 2018) – Travis County Emergency Services District (ESD) No. 2 is adding service capabilities by constructing a new station to be located at 1541 Pflugerville Loop, Pflugerville, TX. Station 5 will include three eighty foot bays, sleeping quarters for ten as well as common and training spaces encompassing approximately 11,000 square feet. It will be located in an area of need and will decrease the workload of the nearby Station 2.
The ESD has also approved constructing a warehouse facility next to Station 4 which will consolidate the District’s ordering and receiving into one central location as well as provide for an air shop, offices and work space for the facilities maintenance staff. This facility will be approximately 10,000 square feet and will provide much needed storage for District supplies and equipment.
KAH Architects was selected by the ESD to provide design plans and Government Capital Corporation was selected for the financing.
“It is important that we continue to invest in facilities and equipment that will allow us to maintain a high level of responsiveness in this fast growing part of the county,” stated Ron Moellenberg, Fire Chief. “Government Capital provided the structure and terms that best met our requirements for these projects and worked with our staff to develop an effective plan.”
“I would like to congratulate the leadership of the Travis County ESD No. 2 and the Pflugerville Fire Department on continuing to respond to the growing needs in Pflugerville and Travis County,” stated Ed King, Government Capital Senior Vice President. “Their constituents are well served by one of the leading ESDs in the state”.
