This four-bay full service fire station was designed to meet the fire protection needs of a fast growing section of west Houston. This 10,000 square foot facility includes four apparatus bays, two of which are drive through; gear storage; maintenance, storage and electrical generator rooms; dormitories for fire fighters and EMT crews; office/dormitories for chief and captains; recreation, dining and kitchen spaces; communications equipment room; and locker, toilet and shower rooms; and mechanical equipment spaces. Site development includes parking spaces for 28 personnel and three visitors, outdoor recreation space, mechanical and trash yards, fueling station, and a 100 foot communications antenna tower. MCCM worked very closely with the Houston Fire Department in the programming and design phase of the project to assure the incorporation of state-of-the-art technology and design criteria. As fire fighting personnel are responsible for most of the maintenance of their fire station, MCCM designed this simple handsome facility using durable construction materials that require minimum maintenance. MCCM was responsible for programming, design, construction documents, interior design, f,f&e, and construction administration phases of the work.
