Zionsville Fire Station #93
Station 93’s program called for four drive-through vehicle bays able to house two pieces of apparatus per bay along with residential quarters for up to twelve firefighters. It was Zionsville Fire Department’s goal that the building be designed for a fifty-year life span, be flexible in layout to accommodate change over time, be economical to maintain and operate and have a scale that reflected the residential developments in the surrounding community. Interior flexibility was achieved by using a steel frame through the center of the residence which allows the entire facility to be reconfigured, within the perimeter walls, without disrupting the structural integrity of the building. The finished design is a result of a carefully managed balance between cost, quality and scope with the end result achieving the overall project goals and reflecting the values of the Zionsville Fire Department and Town of Zionsville.
