FIRM COMPLETES TWO NEW FIRE STATIONS FOR PORT ORANGE, FLA.
ORLANDO, Fla. (October 19, 2009) – C.T. Hsu + Associates announced today the completion of two new fire stations for Port Orange, Fla.:
1. Spruce Creek Fire Station 72 located at 6027 Central Park Boulevard
2. Town West Fire Station 75 located at 1701 Town West Boulevard
Each fire station is 6,948 GSF and designed to accommodate up to four fire apparatuses and six personnel and features the latest “green” technology, including solar water heating features, thermal performance/impact resistant windows, motion-sensor lighting, water-saving faucets and a roof that is insulated beyond code requirements. The fire stations cost $1.8 million each to construct with funding coming from a voter-approved General Obligation (G.O.) Bond.
The firm’s design provides comfort and privacy for the firefighters who live there by locating the sleeping quarters in the interior of the station and away from other active living and administrative areas. The perimeter of the station accommodates multipurpose and potential expansion of bay areas and other spaces that benefit from window exposure. The street entry side of each station provides convenient access to the station offices, a public lobby with public aid station and restrooms that serve both public and staff needs.
