Hutter Construction was honored to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony for the North Acton Fire Station No. 4, in Acton, MA, on June 10th. The station has been in the works for more than 50 years, according to Acton’s town manager, John Mangiaratti, and is the town’s newest since 1961.

We worked with a strong team to navigate pandemic precautions and supply chain challenges to deliver a state-of-the-art emergency response station. Our construction team worked with town employees including Chief Hart, Public Facilities Director Andrea Ristine, and Collector/Deputy Treasurer Theresa O’Leary. We followed the architectural direction of designers Kaestle Boos Associates Inc., the organization and communication of the owner’s Project Manager PMA Consultants.

The station was designed to meet triple net-zero goals to eventually consume zero net energy, produce zero landfill waste and produce zero net greenhouse gas emissions. Geothermal heating and Select Energy’s solar roof array contribute to those goals.

The 21st-century station includes a main station bay, sleeping quarters, health center, kitchen and lounge, and a laundry space designed to decontaminate equipment.
