Goochland Fire Station Number 6 - Goochland, VA

Published by Hank Gottschalk

Goochland’s Fire Station Number Six is situated just a stone’s throw off of Interstate 64, about halfway between the cities of Richmond and Charlottesville Virginia. Increased development flowing westward into Goochland County from the Short Pump area has seen additional housing and new residents moving into the area.

As a primary component of the Fire Station’s small drainage site design, the Timmons Group Corporate Office team in Richmond, Virginia chose to utilize three special runs of trench drain inlets across the entrances to the building site. One run was designed at 18 inches wide by 64 feet long, a second run at 12 inches wide by 30 feet long, and a third run at 24 inches wide by 34 feet long. Each run’s design included custom sloping end treatments for connecting with adjacent ditch drainage.

Concrete Pipe & Precast’s Salem facility produced the custom precast concrete sections. The units were installed as part of the site construction by Greenfield Landscaping of Ashland, VA.
