STW first worked with LFUCG on a feasibility study of this station. STW provided mechanical, plumbing and electrical engineering to the new $5,240,000 and 11,000 square foot station. The facility includes vehicle and equipment storage, as well as sleeping and living quarters for up to fourteen staff. Additionally, the new station will house offices for staff, a wellness facility, and general fire station supplies.
The HVAC system is air-source Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heat recovery system with energy recovery outside air unit and variable flow kitchen exhaust system. The apparatus bays employ a variable-flow, direct-connect vehicle exhaust system with sliding track hose reels. The adjacent gear room has been designed to limit the amount of exposure to carcinogens and includes a full exhaust and make-up air system with activated carbon filtration and high-volume, low-speed circulation fans for more complete removal of contaminants.
The electrical distribution includes an emergency generator to provide full power to the building. Lighting systems are all energy-efficient LED with automatic lighting controls and paging systems interfaced with station alert radio to activate on call. Card access control is also provided for building security.
