P-041 Addition And Renovation, Fire Station, Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, WA
This design-build project was programmed to renovate the existing crash fire station and provide an addition to the existing building. The revised facility houses all of the fire-fighting equipment and personnel at the Ault Field site of Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island. The MZT design build team proposed tearing down the existing structure and building a new fire station using existing foundations. The new 27,000 SF structure was designed with all of the public spaces, such as training areas, office areas and equipment bays on the ground floor. The living areas for fire-fighting personnel are located on the second floor. Special consideration was taken during the design of the living areas for quality of life issues such as, berthing quarters, lounge area, industrial kitchen, and dining area. Special ductless heat pump units were installed in the berthing quarters to preclude any sound entering the area through HVAC ducting.
