The Fire Station: Site Selection, Part 2

Ken Newell, of Stewart, Cooper, Newell Architects, discusses additional items that can impact your site selection when designing your next fire station.

These items include:

  1. Thorofare and roadway planning.
  2. Setbacks
  3. Utility Easements
  4. Weland and floodplains.

With these items in mind, Newell suggests you let your design professional evaluate properties you are interested in acquiring for construction before purchasing to ensure it is appropriate for your project.
