Fire Station #38

DALLAS, TEXAS

Project Info

Fire Station #38 is a new LEED Silver 12,100 s.f. replacement fire station with two full apparatus bays and two half bays, capable of supporting 15 firefighters per shift. The facility also includes dispatch rooms; living quarters and kitchen; and a workout room.  The new station follows sustainable site practices, such as erosion and sedimentation control, encouraging alternative transportation with bicycle storage and carpooling and electrical connectivity for hybrid/electric vehicles, stormwater management and treatment, light pollution reduction, and reduction of the heat island with reflective roofing and paving. Native, water-efficient landscaping and innovative irrigation limits the use of potable water for the site.
