Cy-Fair Fire Station No. 13
Station 13 is the new flagship station of the Cy-Fair Fire Department. The 5-bay station houses offices, a large training/community room, individual sleeping rooms, open-concept living area, and large exercise area. The facility was part of a 4-station concurrent project delivered under once contract.
Station 13: 18,950 Sq. Ft. new 1-story fire station
The report writing station is strategically located in an open alcove off the main hallway with partially frosted/clear glass between it and the common areas for a balance between privacy for focused work and visual connectivity for increased station camaraderie.
The exterior aesthetics blend with the residential development’s other public amenities, mixing contemporary and traditional materials and elements.
The site constraints dictated a back-in-only apparatus bay design and required detailed coordination with the apparatus manufacturer’s turning radius data to keep the roadway clear and promote public safety. Because of the radius of the roadway design, this safety coordination effort included numerous Visibility Curve studies based on state-published guidelines. Public and secure fire department parking areas are separated by security fencing.
