Project Description

The coastal-area City of Jacksonville has come under significant growth thanks to the Marine base, Camp Lejeune. The Fire Station No. 2 project started with a facilities needs study that SCNA performed.

This narrow site brought unique challenges to the project. Specific zoning ordinances and a shallow water table required creative design solutions. As these challenges were faced by the design team, the site layout required two stormwater treatment and detention solutions, one in the front and one in the rear. Instead of simply choosing to ignore these and live with a basic pond the City decided to accentuate these and make these an element of the site.

The building’s aesthetic design incorporates elements from other landmarks in the community, while maintaining a residential scale to blend with the surrounding neighborhood. The building has three drive through bays and the associated support spaces, three Offices, an open plan Day Room and Dining Room, five Sleep Rooms, Exercise Room and Storage Mezzanine

This design is planned to be a prototype for future Jacksonville fire stations.
