Description

Bignell Watkins Hasser Architects completed design and construction administration for this one-story fire station situated on a 3.9 acre site in Montgomery County.

The new 16,771 SF facility includes six bays, crew quarters, kitchen, day room, dining, exercise and office areas, sleeping quarters, watch desk, and study areas. Due to site constraints, the station includes back-in bays instead of the County’s preferred drive-thru bays.

The final design complies with the security and communications requirements of Montgomery County, including security system, remote-control apparatus bays, emergency alert override system, secure separation of administrative and storage areas, radio systems and telephone systems.
