This fire station was the first new station designed and constructed by the Town of Queen Creek in last 30 years and will be the Battalion Station; the largest of the five planned fire stations. Fire Station 1 is a single story four bay, 13,488 s.f. drive-through fire station accommodating ten fire fighters and a battalion chief’s quarters. This station also includes a public lobby, exam room, day room, dining room, kitchen, ten gender neutral dorms and individual restrooms, firefighter offices and a fitness room, associated decontamination areas and support services.
The aesthetics of the fire station was inspired by the ranch homes, agricultural and equestrian structures as well as historic municipal buildings in the local community. The historic character found in municipal buildings, display the use of brick, gable roofs and small openings. While agricultural and equestrian buildings display the use of raw steel, heavy timber, and rusted metal coupled with large standing seam roof planes. The project team worked closely with the Town to develop a design that would tie into the community and provide a strong municipal presence. The proposed architectural style is a combination of both Traditional Ranch and Modern Ranch and is cohesive with newly designed Public Safety Facility.
