AUSTIN, Minn. (KTTC) – The new 7,600 square foot building replaces an outdated, undersized location on Oakland Avenue.
The new structure took 9 months of construction but the project had been in the works for years.
“The planning was probably a solid 9 to 12 months before we actually started digging to make sure we got all the important features in the building that we needed.” said Kristofer Keltgen, Mayo Clinic Ambulance manager of operationss.
Staff also say the station was built with future innovations in mind and with a lifespan of 45 to 50 years.
The building has new technology, space to add ambulances and staff, as well as much more room for training and storing equipment.
