Project Description

The City of Casper is a beautiful, family-friendly city located in central Wyoming with a population of about 57,000 residents. Stewart-Cooper-Newell Architects partnered with Casper-based GSG Architecture to provide the Fire-EMS Department with an efficient and modern fire station design that was able to accommodate the budget constraints of the city, while giving the firefighters the larger, more functional facility they needed.

Situated on two-acres, and replacing the original facility, the apparatus bay portion of Station 3 is a pre-engineered metal structure with masonry cavity exterior walls designed to meet stringent snow loads of the area. It includes three drive-through apparatus bays with room to add additional bays in the future. The living and meeting quarters accommodates six individual sleep rooms, exercise room, kitchen, dayroom, individual toilet and shower spaces, offices, and an outdoor patio. Community space includes a meeting room and a Safe Room lobby area as well as a spacious outdoor patio and generous landscaping.

Energy Efficient features include solar tube natural lighting, tankless hot water heaters, LED lighting with occupancy sensors, a 95% AFUE Efficiency Furnace and radiant heaters in bays.

The City of Casper is currently constructing a replacement station in another area of the city based on this easily modified prototype design.
