Twenty years ago I began work with Sinclair & Wright Architects. Carroll Sinclair was the partner in charge of a new Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting Station (ARFF). I had the pleasure of working with Carroll on this 6,481 SF building containing four equipment bays for rescue and firefighting equipment and dormitory, cooking, and training facilities for three shifts of up to six persons per shift.
The exterior is primarily metal roof and wall panels for compatibility with adjacent hangers. The living quarters are enclosed in textured masonry walls. An interesting feature was design of a wind sock on top of a television antenna.
Demolition included the complete removal of an existing 2,000 SF Rescue & Fire Fighting Station. A significant issue addressed was aircraft construction vehicle, rescue vehicle and private vehicle ingress & egress in connection with each other while demolition and construction activity took place. The construction cost was $571,000.
