Chico Calif.—Work has begun on the new Calfire Administration Facility and Fire Station.
The new Butte Unit Headquarters facility is located on Nelson Avenue in Oroville.
Bobo Construction out of Elk Grove will perform the demolition and construction.
The contract was awarded to Bobo Construction in 2017.
The project includes a complete demolition and re-grading of the current four and a half acre facility, except for the Emergency Command Center building.
The project involves the construction of nine replacement buildings, including a new Fire Station, fleet maintenance shop, administrative building, and warehouse.
The Calfire staff has moved to temporary locations around Oroville and Durham during the construction, which is expected to take about two years.
