Statesville Fire Station No.1

Statesville, NC

About the Project

The city’s new fire station consists of a 2-story, 26,000sf building that replaced the existing station to accommodate the City’s growing needs. The lower level consists of load-bearing masonry, cast-in-place concrete, and steel construction. On the lower level, there are 14 large offices, a conference room, a break room, and large logistical storage rooms. This area will support the fire administration and logistical support for the department. The upper level is wood framed and houses 11 bunk rooms with 33 beds, showers, a large capacity kitchen, training, and fitness areas for the fire staff. The Apparatus Bay consists of load-bearing masonry and steel construction with 4 pull-through bays and 2 mezzanines that provide additional storage and training needs. Exterior finishes include a mix of a local Statesville red brick veneer, architectural block veneer, FRP, decorative elements, standing seam metal awnings, and a 40-year shingle roof. There is also a 3-story training tower utilized by the fire staff for various training exercises.
