Ponderosa Fire Department Addition

Project Purpose

The Ponderosa Fire Station (Station 82) in Bellemont, Arizona has an existing station but needs more space for housing firefighters, hosting community events, conducting meetings, and storing a battalion chief or ambulance. At any given time, the Ponderosa Fire Station houses up to five firefighters but only has the capacity to comfortably accommodate two. The station does not have an official meeting area and currently holds meetings in the firetruck bay. The station wishes to host community events that can hold 30- 50 people and sets this as their priority. The goal of this project is to design a building addition that flows with the existing station and meets the growing needs of the fire station.
