Project Description

Asheville Fire and Rescue Station No. 10 shares a prototype design with its sister Station No. 11. The 3-bay station includes a kitchen, day room, offices and ten sleep rooms. To ensure the station remains functional and safe, it was designed for heavy snow loads and the ability to rely on auxiliary power, in the event of major winter storms.

Since Asheville lies on a major fault line, seismic structural strength was also increased. The apparatus floor is four feet lower than the rest of the station. A wheelchair lift was incorporated to maintain full handicap accessibility throughout the station.

A small Police Substation also calls No. 10 home.
