South Metro Fire Rescue No. 15

South Metro Fire Rescue Station No. 15 will provide better fire service, greater safety, a healthier environment, lower maintenance and energy costs, and a strong community presence. The facility is designed and detailed to a 75-year material and quality standard, assuring many years of productive life. OZ designed a two-story building with three apparatus bays in a unique geometry utilizing every buildable area of the site. It is a robust building with hand-molded brick in a Flemish bond with an accent brick color on every third vertical course, large red and glass bay doors, a two-story volume, and a “civic” tower, giving it a traditional feel. OZ designed Station No. 15 as a modern structure with the added elements of copious natural light, unique roof forms, and ample well-lit interiors. The interiors incorporate best practices for firehouses with spaces dedicated to decontamination, open social spaces, shared and intimate private spaces, fire training areas, and individually controlled sleeping areas to help mitigate the stress of being a first responder and attract and retain staff.
