This 11,000 square foot four-bay fire station is located in a recently annexed section of northwest Houston.

Fire Station No. 96 includes four drive-through apparatus bays; maintenance and storage rooms; clean room; electrical generator room; gear locker room; hose maintenance space; dormitories for fire fighter and EMT crews; office/dormitories for chief and captains; toilet, shower and dressing rooms for men and women; recreation, dining, kitchen and exercise rooms; computer and communications rooms; visitor’s toilet room; and mechanical equipment spaces. Primary exterior materials of the steel frame building are masonry and stucco. Site work includes parking for 25 personnel and 3 visitors, outdoor recreation area, mechanical and trash storage yards, heliport, fueling station, and a 150 ft. communications antenna tower. MCCM was responsible for programming, design, construction documentation, interior design, f,f&e, and construction phase services.
