Take a look at the final design sketches of the new Stillwater Fire Station.
Representatives from BWBR and Kraus-Anderson told the council the project is currently estimated to be on budget at $7.3 million. The design team hopes to put the project out to bid by the end of June, with the hopes of completing construction in summer 2015.
The new Fire Station and Readiness Center will be located at the intersection of County Road 12 and Boutwell Road.
Here are a few of the designs the council got a glimpse of this week:
The new 24,000 square-foot fire station will be connected — with separate entrances and identifying features — to the 79,000-square-foot National Guard Readiness Center site that will include an auditorium, classrooms, kitchen, fitness area, locker rooms, administrative spaces and a space that will be used for simulated marksmanship training.

The Fire Station will have seven bays, training areas, administrative offices, bunk rooms, a hose tower and more. The roof on the left will be used as a training area, allowing firefighters to do various training and repelling exercises from the tower.
The hose tower is the most visible, and identifiable element of the new fire station. The logo and lettering on the tower are place holders for future designs.

One bid alternative is to include garage space to display Stillwater Fire Engine No. 1.
Another bid alternative is to build extra bunking space.
