Mountain View Fire Rescue Maintenance Facility

Mountain View Fire Rescue is a medium-sized fire department located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The department provides fire and rescue services to the town of Erie and the surrounding areas. MVFR is committed to providing the highest level of service possible and to maintaining the highest standards of safety for the community.

Project Details

Elder Construction was the Design-Assist prime contractor for the Mountain View Fire Rescue (MVFR) Maintenance Facility with an approximate estimated value of $4.8 million. As Erie and the neighboring communities grew, MVFR experienced increased demand on their team to keep these communities safe. With land donated by Anadarko, they seized the opportunity to provide a new 23,100-square-foot facility in which to maintain their equipment, house their staff, and increase their storage.
