Location: Burton, MI
Project Description: This new LEED Certified, 13,500 sq.ft., 5-bay fire station was designed and constructed as a replacement for the existing Burton Fire station #2.
Scope of Services:
- A high efficiency geothermal heating and cooling system with radiant heat in the floors of the apparatus bays.
- A command center, complete with state-of-the-art communication systems and an emergency generator was designed to allow the City of Burton’s firefighting services to continue performing at full capacity in the event of an outage. The facility is also equipped to serve as a shelter in case of a civil defense emergency.
- An underground water storage system for storm water management.
- Constructed with highly durable materials designed for long life and low maintenance.
- Strategically designed and constructed to allow the original facility to remain operational until the new facility was completed. Once completed, the original facility was removed.
- Convenient, friendly design which allows the neighboring City Park to share the station’s parking and restroom facilities.
- High efficiency lighting and light sensors that control lights to conserve energy when the facility is not in use.
