Homewood Fire Station
8” thick cast in place concrete ceilings and poured solid block help the building withstand extreme weather conditions.
The City of Homewood challenged us with building a state-of–art fire station on a site that once served as their maintenance yard. We saw the opportunity for reuse and gladly accepted.
The new facility houses 4 bays capable of storing 8 department vehicles. There are 11 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a living area, a commercial kitchen, and training/meeting rooms. It also includes an underground tank to store hazardous chemicals, and a 20,000-gallon underground cistern for rainwater storage. The water trapped is used to prime the fire equipment for training and for irrigation. The building was designed using LEED Standards.
