F.I.E.R.O. Fire Station Design Award Winner
Station: Charlottesville (VA) Fire Department Station 10
Architects: LeMay Erickson Willcox, Reston, Virginia
Station 10 for Charlottesville, Virginia, stood out to the F.I.E.R.O. Design Awards Jury for a number of reasons. The design has a clearly defined public entry. The design took advantage of a marginal site by adding parking and confined space training areas below the station rather than filling the site to grade level. The layout has carefully delineated and separated the functional areas of the station. Most of the apparatus floor support areas are away from the crew areas. The crew areas are carefully zoned into public, semipublic, semiprivate, and private areas. The public has access to a large classroom on the third level without having access or exposure to the dorm area. One stairwell has been carefully devised to double as a training tower.
