Boght Community Fire District


Cohoes, New York

The Boght Community Fire District located in Cohoes, near the Town of Latham NY, recognized that the ability of their current facility to meet the current and future needs of the community needed to be re-evaluated.  New development and changing apparatus and training requirements resulted in changes for the use of their facility.

Beginning with a detailed evaluation of the three structures comprising their existing facility, C.T. Male Associates has provided the Fire District with the design of a modern and efficient essential services facility. This will replace the existing fire station, administrative building and fire hall, which has also incorporated the replacement of the nearby Town of Colonie ambulance substation. C.T. Male Associates’ services on this project have also included:

These services were performed to assist the Fire District in determination of the feasibility of the proposed replacement of their existing facilities for bond referendum approval.

The new shared services Fire Department / EMS Facility is located on a site within the Canterbury Crossing Planned Development District.  The new 27,000 square foot structure includes apparatus bays for both fire apparatus and EMS vehicles, radio rooms with visual oversight of the station’s approach, laundry/decon space, workout room, locker room, standby facilities, administrative offices, conference spaces and a community hall with a full-service kitchen to meet the essential services need of the community.
