This 8,130 SF facility was designed as replacement for an old 1970’s fire station also located on the airfield. IPG provided architectural design, interiors, construction documents, and construction administration. The design called for phased construction so the existing facility could remain online until the new ARFF was ready to occupy. Once the new building was occupied the old was demolished and fences relocated. The Airport Authority wanted develop Design Standards for future projects located on the airfield. IPG provided several options and alternatives regarding materials and colors which allowed the Airport Authority to select an option that now bears the future architectural standards for new facilities on the airport. The new station contains four dorms for firefighters, as well as a full kitchen and exercise room. It also contains dedicated decontamination, first-aid and training rooms and has the capabilities to wash firefighters’ turnout gear and recharge their heating and air systems. Use of aluminum sunshade materials mimic an airplane wing while providing sun-screening on the “airside” of the building.
