Getting the Right Start for Your Fire Station Design (~30 mins)
by Ken Newell, Principal, Stewart-Cooper-Newell Architects
Designing a fire station project can be a daunting task but it doesn’t have to overwhelm you. As one of the opening sessions at FIERO, this presentation will introduce the audience to the foundational components necessary for the planning, design, and construction of your great Fire Station. We will cover critical issues such as: planning and building the 75-year station; the evolution of fire station design and recent trends; selecting the design team; and, pitfalls to avoid.
Feasibility Studies (~30 mins)
by Lynn Reda, Principal, & Keith Driscoll, Senior Associate, Hughes Group Architects
Feasibility studies and building assessments are essential tools that help define the possibilities and limitations of a potential site, new building or renovation project. Learn the benefits and limitations of having a Feasibility Study completed before purchasing a piece of land, and how a Feasibility Study can be used to evaluate site location and generate community support. Through case study examples, understand when to conduct a Building Assessment as part of a large planning effort.
