Hirschi Masonry, a masonry contractor based in Southern Nevada, has announced the completion of work at Firetrucks Unlimited at 1178 Center Point Drive in Henderson. Firetrucks Unlimited provides fire truck refurbishment services to municipal, government and military clients. The new building serves as housing for a vintage fire truck collection.
“This project is one of the most remarkable designs that utilizes different colors. We are proud to be a part of creating an aesthetically pleasing building,” said Chad Hirschi, president and CEO of Hirschi Masonry.
Hirschi began its work on Firetrucks Unlimited in August 2017 and is scheduled for completion in February 2018. Hirschi installed site retaining and screen walls to resemble a classic fire station. The structure utilized four different concrete masonry unit , or CMU, colors and two different exterior textures, as well as brick veneer. The total CMU count for thestructural building was approximately 23,700 units, which was installed in four weeks’ time. More than 8,500 units of brick veneer were implemented to complement the structural CMU walls. The brick veneer added a sense of character to the building and was created using both running bond and soldier-course patterns.
