Throughout our history, we’ve had many opportunities to design and work with many fire companies around the area. From our experience, we know the importance of a well designed fire station plan. We have provided many fire companies in Pennsylvania with architectural assistance. Below are just a few fire stations we have worked on in recent years.
New Tripoli Fire Company
The New Tripoli Fire Company needed a long-awaited update to their outdated fire company, so we joined in to provide the planning for a 2-story, 10,770 SF fire station. The design of this fire station included a unique aspect in that it involved demolishing the outdated fire station addition connected to the original school/converted banquet hall and constructing a new modern fire station addition. The addition included 5 bays designed for modern trucks and an additional 6th bay for an ambulance. It also features separate, 1st floor private lounges and offices for the paid EMS and volunteer fire crew, along with a large mezzanine for storage and future growth.
New Ringgold Fire Company
At the New Ringgold Fire Company, there was no large addition or extensive renovation provided, but a smaller project that included improvements to the existing Social Club. It increased the bar size, added an improved flooring constructed of polished concrete, and a kitchen with new equipment.
Chalfont Fire Company
For the Chalfont Fire Company, we designed and provided drawings for their new station, which also included space for future office expansion. The new design provides the fire department with a six-engine bay with high ceilings, a full commercial kitchen, an 80-person meeting/classroom, and additional storage space.
There are many needs for a fire company, such as the bigger bays and rooms for meetings or training classes. Whether it’s a new building, an addition or renovation, you can be assured we have past knowledge in designing fire companies. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and discuss your needs.
