Eastside Fire Station, Milford, CT Cost: $3.5M | Project Area: 12,000 SF / 2.25 acres

Consolidation of fire facilities and improved service times led Milford to select a site for this station that was dominated by a steep hillside.

Task:

  • To consolidate fire facilities and improve service times

Challenge:

  • To maintain natural buffers between the station and the flanking residential properties

Solution:

  • Designed a one-story building organized around a four-bay “drive-through” apparatus room
  • Placing sleeping rooms in one wing and the kitchen, classroom, office and day room functions in the other
  • Hugs the ground and the apparent scale of its 12,00 s.f. footprint was greatly reduced to fin the area
