The Dallas Fire Station #6 project, built for City of Dallas, includes the new construction of a one story 13,287 square foot replacement of an existing fire station. The facility supports an apparatus bay for three pieces of equipment as well as one rescue unit. The building was constructed of structural steel columns and beams, exterior brick veneer with metal and cement panels on metal framed walls. Interior finishes consisted of stud wall framing covered with painted drywall and stained concrete flooring. The project also features high ceilings in the corridors allowing ambient lighting in from the outside with large overhanging roofs in areas to let light in at the many curtain walls in the apparatus bay and back porch.
The project was constructed to meet the LEED Platinum requirements with items such as solar power, geothermal HVAC, LED lighting fixtures and irrigation systems to name a few. This building was built to replace a fire station built in the early 1950's to serve an area of Dallas located between downtown and the fairgrounds where very little new construction has occurred and was very well accepted by the neighborhood as well as the fireman who will be serving from it.
