Fire Station #9 was developed as a LEED Silver modification to the Columbus Consolidated Government Prototype Fire Station design. Station #9 was the first new fire station under the City’s sustainability directive. As the design team of choice, our team implemented a collaborative design process fully engaging all stakeholders. The process allowed for evaluation of all aspects of the prototype, while fully investigating all avenues of sustainability.

The project goals included developing the facility to LEED Silver while improving on the prototype in relation to space and operational efficiency. The project was sited adjacent to the new Fire Training Center, also designed by our team.

The design included a variable refrigerant flow (VRF) mechanical system which not only saves energy, but allows each room thermostatic control. The three bays utilize gas radiant heating and an Airvac 911 engine exhaust removal system. The station has a solar water heating system, LED lighting, a whole-house generator, and high performance, high-speed overhead coiling doors.

The new Columbus Fire and Emergency Medical Services training center was part of master plan for the site on Macon Road. The first phase constructed the three bay station #9. The second phase was the five story fire training tower, site burn props, covered training area and control room. The future phases are an expanded vehicle driver training course, expanded parking area, and a new administration building. Construction costs were nearly $1.5M which included site preparation of a previous swamp area.
