Skaneateles Volunteer Fire Department

NEW FIRE STATION / DISPATCH CENTER 

 

Programming and design for a 15,160 SF, two-story new Fire Station with 4 drive-thru apparatus double bays to house the community’s all volunteer fire department, auxiliary and “24/7” dispatch center.

The facility was designed to maximize operational efficiency for the firefighters while complementing and contributing to the historic village character. Building detailing included the use of brick, limestone (actually precast), clapboard siding, double hung windows, shingle roof, generous eave and rake overhangs and cornices, decorative brackets and gable bracing and arched, keystoned overhead door openings and appropriate trims throughout.

The highly prominent corner site required the civic structure to function as a gateway for visitors from both the west and the south. The architectural response incorporated 3 distinctly different entrance porches to announce the public function, to welcome the citizenry to public functions, and to serve the day-to-day operational needs of the three emergency services groups.

The project also required the demolition of a former gas station and removal of underground gas tanks.
