scottsdale fire station no. 2
Scottsdale Fire Station No. 2, located in Downtown Scottsdale represents the first Fire Station in the United States to receive LEED PLATINUM certification from the USGBC. The two-story Emergency Service facility meets the daily operational needs of the new City of Scottsdale Fire Department and community, while utilizing both passive and active sustainable green building principles to maximize sustainability and enhance overall energy performance. The modern architecture responds to both the civic & historical context of the surrounding urban area drawing from the materials, colors, and textures of the existing built environment. Sustainable materials were used throughout the design in vertical and horizontal applications. Natural materials including locally manufactured ground face concrete masonry, in combination with Arizona sandstone, glass, and weathering steel define the building surface.
Fire Station 602 includes 3 apparatus bays, a utility shop, decon room, turn out room, and various other support spaces. The station houses ten firefighters including 2 captain dorms and offices, a battalion chief and fit quarters, crew office, dayroom, dinning room, kitchen, and a physical conditioning room.
The project incorporates reycled materials, water harvesting, and collects solar energy for radiant heating and electricity. LEA worked closely with the Scottsdale Fire Department and City Planners to design a facilitiy that integrates with the neighboring City Design Center. The Fire Station includes a community room that opens on to a shared courtyard. Cor-ten weathered steel pivot gates incorporate public art into the architecture, and provide flexibility in varying the level of security, and configuration of the shared courtyard space.
