CITY OF GLENDALE, FIRE STATION NO. 159
This 14,000 SF fire station houses four apparatus bays, living quarters for 10 department personnel, a full kitchen and a 1,000 SF fully-equipped fitness facility.
The design and materials were selected for ease of construction while providing a beloved home to the crew.
The design integrates a sustainable building philosophy by bringing in natural light, providing operable windows at the living quarters, and incorporating water-saving features such as indigenous landscaping and dual-flushing water closets. Deeply overhung windows and a large, shaded patio were brought into the design to create shelter from the harsh desert environment.
The Owner representatives, contractor, and design team collaborated intensely to meet the 12 months goal. Opening this station in such a short time saved the project cost and could house the crew and serve the community early.
The crew was so happy with the station design that they nicknamed this station “Cloud 9.”
