Fire Station Novato

Novato Fire Station #64, Novato

The existing Fire Station #64 is aging and has functional inadequacies that limit its efficient operation. This new facility, at 14,000 square feet, provides new space for paramedics, gear storage, training, and single-room dormitory living. The building maximizes the limited site by locating most of the dormitory on the north side, and the community/training facility towards the front, as well as having a 2nd floor over the four-bay apparatus garage. Adequate space is available to turn around a ladder truck at the rear.  Sustainable elements make this a LEED Silver building. G/A provided a conceptual architectural design.
