Project Description

Located at the base of Crowders Mountain in southwest Gastonia, Crowders Mountain Volunteer Fire & Rescue serves a rural area that is a popular hiking and rock-climbing destination, and is experiencing recent growth in its residential community. The facility was built as the new department headquarters, offices and main station following the merger of three small volunteer departments.

The architectural language of the facility is designed to coincide with its residential surroundings. The station has four bays with full-glass doors, a pitched roof, and columns supporting the front entrance canopy. The station features one large training room that can be subdivided into two smaller classrooms via the folding partition in order to meet the training needs of the volunteers.

Also housed in the facility are department offices, a kitchen, a day room located off the main lobby for ease of access to volunteers, a physical training room, and toilet/shower facilities. Located adjacent to the apparatus bays are EMS storage, decontamination and a mezzanine for storage.
