Orchard Mesa Fire Station #4
Grand Junction, Colorado
This new station updates the prototype design for fire stations in the City of Grand Junction. At 8,900 sf, our design is based on the plan for the Redlands Fire Station #5 which has 3-bays, three-shifts, sleeping for six people, and is open 24-hours. We made modifications to increase functionality, efficiency, and comfort.
We used durable and easy to maintain materials, and built in adequate acoustical separation of the living area, bunk rooms, apparatus bays, and physical fitness room. The building exterior includes concrete masonry and stucco to blend with the residential neighborhood, and the adjacent church and elementary school.
