MELVILLE New Firehouse Blazes Green Path

District aims for LEED-Silver ranking on its new substation

By Danny Schrafel


Melville Fire District officials broke ground on a

new, environmentally friendly, $4-milllion substation Saturday.


The one-story substation, located off Route 110 on Amityville Road near the Northern State Parkway, has a 8,623-square-foot footprint on 0.83 acres, and includes a partial cellar, a truck room doubled in size and improved ventilation systems.


District officials said the cost is in the area of $4 million, which will be drawn from Melville FD’s capital reserve fund.


Melville FD Chief Michael Carrieri said the new facility would bring immediate safety improvements for volunteers using the facility.

“The firehouse we had before was very, very small, especially the truck room,” Carrieri said. “These guys were gearing up one foot away from the side of the truck when the truck was rolling out – it’s very dangerous.”


The facility, which will be one of Melville’s three substations, will also provide additional training and storage space for volunteers.


Not only is the facility conscious of the volunteers who will use it, it is also being built to be environmentally friendly.


Jimmy Carchietta, a representative of the Cotocan Group, the project’s LEED consulting firm, is expecting the substation to receive Silver certification.


“We’re setting a benchmark for the Town of Huntington… we’re setting a benchmark for Long Island, really,” added Robert Rodrigues, site supervisor for the construction management firm, Alden Group.

The path to LEED ranking began right after demolition, officials explained. Excavation for the new substation began on Monday.

“We’ll be recycling the existing building and using all that material to come back to the site as base material,” Carchietta said. “We’re also going to be also recycling the bank run that comes out of this facility, and that’s going to go to the concrete plant.”


High-efficiency equipment, which will reduce the use of electricity, water and heat, is also being incorporated to limit the ongoing environmental impact.


Officials are hoping the exterior will be complete by November, allowing crews to work through the winter on the interior and finish the project by July 2014.
