LEA completed design and construction for 2 Fire Stations for Highland Fire District, Station No. 25 and 23. Both Stations are single-story and sleep 6 full-time fire fighters. Station features include a full size kitchen and dining area which is accented with circular skylights, large work out room and mezzanine storage in the apparatus bays set up for fire fighter training. Station No. 23 features a 2,000 s.f. community room. The two (2) Apparatus Bays at Fire 23 + 25 are equipped with in-floor trench drains. In shady concrete areas, snow and ice control is achieved with covered patios to prevent hazardous build-up conditions in the alpine climate of Flagstaff. LEA’s design incorporates integral color split-face CMU with cedar tongue and groove siding and natural stone veneer on station 25. The sloped standing seam roofing with exposed glue-laminated beams throughout the building provide structural support. The cozy Day Rooms includes a built-in entertainment center, fireplace and outdoor BBQ pit.

Highlands Fire Station No. 23 received the Coconino County Award for Sustainability and is the top Sustainable building in all of Coconino County.
