Kinston Fire Station no.2&3

KINSTON, NORTH CAROLINA

SUMMARY

Davis Kane was commissioned to design Stations No. 2 & 3; two identical 5,908 square foot buildings for separate but similar sites. Both stations were built with the use of American Recovery & Reinvestment Act funds through the local USDA-Rural Development office. Davis Kane Architects worked closely with the City of Kinston during the process to assist in procuring the funding needed for the stations. The stations are slab-on-grade, with a combination of steel frame and load-bearing concrete masonry wall structure. Exterior finishes include brick masonry and an exposed fastener metal panel system. Each station features two drive-through apparatus bays, the associated gear/storage rooms, private sleeping quarters for 12 persons, two offices, and a training room that also operates as an eat-in kitchen. Each station is designed for future expansion of two additional apparatus bays and four sleeping quarters to accommodate an additional 12 persons.

Architectural, Plumbing, Mechanical, and building-associated Electrical plans were all designed and executed using Revit BIM software.
