Location: Seattle, Washington

This $13.6 million project involved the renovation and seismic upgrade of the oldest working fire station in the City of Seattle. The existing 38,000-square-foot, two-story masonry structure, constructed in 1921, was preserved as an important historic landmark while expanding its operational capability and updating it to meet the new master facilities program of the fire department. Improvements include a remodeled interior to provide more space for fire operations with dedicated spaces for decontamination, gear storage, and capacity for another firefighting vehicle; space to house one of the City’s three new fragmentation caches; and a new occupational health center for treating injured firefighters.
