Located in the heart of Downtown Carefree, on a small triangular site, the 9,000 square foot Fire Station and Emergency Operations Center (EOC), meets the current and future emergency service response demands of the rapidly growing community. Natural materials such as split face concrete masonry, steel, and perforated metal tie into the historic icon sundial located nearby. The natural materials also introduce scale and texture to the building envelope while the elegant and simple forms of the standing seam weathering metal roof line emulate the surrounding mountains. The triangular roof forms also provide deep shading overhangs from the harsh desert sun. Although not intended to be LEED® Certified, numerous sustainable design strategies, both passive and active, were incorporated into the building. Notable features include: Thermal Mass Floors and Walls, Natural Daylighting, Recycled and Regional Materials, Low-E Glass, High Efficiency Lighting Fixtures, High Efficiency Mechanical Units, and Indigenous Landscaping.
