Big Sky Fire Department Station No. 3

Big Sky Fire Department Station plays an important function as a fire rescue station and a gateway to the Spanish Peaks development in Big Sky, Montana. The design expresses a Civic presence and takes a holistic approach focusing on efficiency, resiliency, permanence, and aesthetics within a budget. Firefighters’ health and well-being inform the building layout, providing healthy, efficient, and comfortable spaces. The exterior shows respect for the natural surroundings and terrain using natural materials, hues, and forms associated with the nearby community in conjunction with the added need for fire mitigation efforts in the Mountainous West. Class A fire-resistant materials, such as stone, fire-treated wood, mass timber, and standing seam metal roofing, are utilized for their fire resistance. Mechanical and ventilation systems and building wall cavity vents are designed to resist fire and ember intrusion. Wildlife fire mitigation extends to the site via the landscape design. The design offers the public an attractive example of fire-resistant plants, materials, and layouts appropriate within the Wildland Urban Interface.
