Every decision a Fire Chief makes is temporary.


The next Mayor, City Manager or Chief can change them.


Whether it is about policy, procedure, personnel, tactics, strategy, or the budget, none of the Chief’s decisions are permanent; except one.


Decisions made about the design and functionality of a firehouse are permanent. You only get one chance on this one.


You need to get it right.

Helping firefighters, architects & government agencies design and build maintainable, durable, and most importantly, functional firehouses.

   

THE FIREHOUSE COSTS 4 TO 5 TIMES MORE THAN THE FIRETRUCK.

      DON’T YOU THINK IT SHOULD LAST AT LEAST TWICE AS LONG?

 

FIREFIGHTERS DEPEND ON TOOLS THAT LAST.

      SHOULDN’T THE FIREHOUSE BE ONE OF THEM?

 

TAXPAYERS ARE PAYING FOR THE FIREHOUSE FOR THIRTY YEARS.

      SHOULDN'T IT LAST LONGER THAN THAT?

The Program Statement, rooted in 200 years of architectural tradition, calls for a small motel with a self-serve kitchen, private dining room, business center, classroom, gym, repair shop, an apparent excess of storage space including hazardous waste, ADA compliance, public access, an over sized garage capable of withstanding the Forces of Nature and enough concrete and parking to drive the Planning Department crazy.

You're building a Firehouse!
