Project Description

Asheville Fire and Rescue Station 11 shares a prototype design with its sister Station 10. Station No. 11 and 10 are nearly identical in terms of the building floor plan. Creating efficiency for the City, Stewart-Cooper-Newell designed both of these stations at the same time.

Due to Station 11’s commercial zone location, the design team added a pitched roof and an enhanced exterior facade so that it would blend into its surroundings. Features of this station include heavy snow load roof capacity, auxiliary power in the event of major storms, and increased seismic structural strength since Asheville lies on a major fault line.

A police sub-station was incorporated into the design, but has since been converted to the Fire Marshall’s office.
