LEA served as designer of the new Bullhead City Fire Station No. 5. Because of our strong presence in western Arizona, we were able to work with the City, Fire Department, the Home Owners Association and our consultants successfully in quickly designing this fire station. This two bay station features Dorm Areas, Toilets, Captain’s Quarters, Weight Room, Living Room, Dining Area, and Kitchen. An outdoor patio with a gas barbecue was also included. The site was designed to accommodate parking for nine cars. Complicated slopes on the site required close work with our civil engineer in Bullhead City. The project was designed to blend into the surrounding development of Bullhead City by using stucco and concrete tiles. Residential detailing and building design were also utilized to help in achieving this appearance. This was important because in the hilly terrain, the building can be seen from a number of places making it impossible to consider that the station had a “back”.

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.

Natural materials are used throughout the project including clay fired brick and concrete masonry which is both harvested and manufactured local to the area. The project utilizes sustainable design strategies including natural daylighting to reduce overall energy consumption as well as operable windows to improve the overall indoor environmental quality for the building occupants. Security was of upmost importance to the users of the facility which dictated that the private dormitories be located towards the rear of the station behind the perimeter security site walls. To ensure that the building would also be open and inviting to the public the lobby serving both the Administration Wing and Fire Station is located facing El Mirage Road. The Community Room serving the public also is located adjacent to the lobby which includes expansive glazing protected by a vertical shade screen as well as an outdoor patio space.

view project images

Paradise Valley Fire Station No. 1 was designed to integrate into a natural desert hillside site in Paradise Valley Arizona. The station visually relates to the natural surroundings and the project incorporates numerous passive and active sustainable ‘green’ building design strategies. LEA and Paradise Valley expressed a desire for a low maintenance building. The use of both weathering and pre-finished metal was essential to the overall design strategy employed to accomplish these goals. The metal panels used in the project require no future painting or refinishing. The rich earth colored weathering standing seam metal roof and wall panels tie the building to the natural desert environment and offer contrast to the lighter colored ground face concrete masonry units and clay tile sun screen walls. The saw tooth folding plane of the roof canopies offer shade and metaphorically tie the building to its hillside surroundings. The deep shadow of the standing seam ribs form a crisp edge as they transition from the roof to the vertical wall plane. The rhythm of the roof, wall, and soffit panels introduces both scale and texture to the project.

Paradise Valley Fire Station No. 2 was designed to integrate into the natural desert environment and the neighboring Town of Paradise Valley Municipal Complex. Natural materials including ground-face concrete masonry and exposed weathering steel roof forms tie the building to the site. Fire Station No. 2 incorporates numerous passive and active sustainable ‘green’ building design strategies. The use of ground face concrete masonry units, smooth face concrete masonry, and hollow clay tile units in conjunction with galvanized and weathering/pre-finished metal was essential to the overall design strategy employed to accomplish this goal. The interior exposed masonry works in harmony with the ground concrete floors to provide a durable zero maintenance material with considerable thermal mass for temperature stability and energy conservation. The roof forms allow for natural controlled day light through clerestory windows.

The modern architecture responds to the desert environmentas well as the surrounding industrial context. The cylindrical form of the Fire Station’s physical fitness room, cladded on the exterior with insulated metal wall paneling, with translucent glass fin fenestration metaphorically speaks to the fire stations primary mission requirement as a first responder serving the industrial context of the large surrounding fuel farm structures. The use of natural materials for both buildings, including locally manufactured integral color ground face concrete block units, the prevalent use of steel, and perforated metal further relate to the industrial buildings near the site. The Fire Station’s west façade is protected from the harsh desert sun by a continuous horizontal steel shade canopy over the apparatus bay doors while the main entrance is protected by a deep roof overhang and a vertical shade screen of perforated metal. The west façade of the Storage Building mimics the west façade of the Fire Station at the apparatus bays with a continuous horizontal steel shade canopy to block the western sun. The South facing standing seam metal shed roof over the living quarters of the Fire Station houses roof mounted photovoltaic modules while additional double sided photovoltaic modules are located over the patio off of the kitchen which double as a shade canopy.

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.

LEA worked with Chief Hank Green and the City of Yuma in the construction of the new Yuma Fire Station No. 2. The facility includes three (3) drive-through apparatus bays, living, kitchen and dining spaces. The facility sleeps ten (10) firefighters and contains offices for both the Police and Fire Departments. The Fire Station is located on a golf course and is constructed of stained split-face concrete masonry units with stained accent band and a vaulted metal roof. The apparatus room utilizes translucent wall panels to allow natural light into the bays but eliminates glare. Fire Station No. 2 also includes an exterior covered rear apparatus apron to allow vehicles to be parked/washed outside without being in the intense sunlight. There is also a detached Public Restroom Facility for use by the Public and Golfers, but is designed to integrate with the Fire Station. Fire Station No. 2 was a “turn-key” project and included all of the communications wiring, security systems, cable, etc. in the construction contract.
