Williamson Road Fire Station

Location: Roanoke, VA

This fire station provides two double deep drive-thru apparatus bays, an operations center, and all support functions required for Fire/EMS personnel such as dorm rooms, offices, kitchen, and a dining-dayroom that doubles as a community room. The project included development of all site work required to meet the maneuvering requirements of the fire apparatus assigned to the station as well as on-site parking for department and personal vehicles.

The design incorporated sustainable elements such as water-conserving features including rainwater harvesting for flushing toilets and washing bays, low-flow toilets and showers, a bioretention pond, and a pervious concrete parking lot. Other sustainable features are low VOC materials, construction waste recycling, a high-performance thermal envelope, soy-based spray foam insulation, and a kitchen composting machine for food scraps.

This project was Roanoke City’s first certified LEED Gold project.
