Stevens County Fire Needs Assessment

Project
Stevens County Fire Protection District No. 1, looking to evaluate current and future needs for the Loon Lake, Suncrest and Clayton areas, hired Mackenzie to develop a needs assessment to evaluate the current stations within these communities. The needs assessment report enabled the Fire District to understand its current and future needs by defining the spatial requirements for equipment, supplies and staff for the three stations under consideration. Mackenzie started the process of evaluating the existing stations, noting items not in compliance with current building code (ADA accessibility...Learn more

Salem Fire Stations #5, 7, 10, and 11

Project
These 10,500 SF fire stations are based on a prototype design adapted to the needs of each site. Design documents were developed concurrently, and the stations bid together, with selection of a single contractor. Staggered construction allowed crews to transition from site to site—creating sufficient savings for the City to accept the bid alternate for a fourth bay for each station. Each facility has four apparatus bays, offices, display museum, auxiliary equipment storage, turn-out laundry, and shop areas in addition to living quarters, which include dorms, kitchen, and workout areas. The...Learn more

Buckley Fire Station

Project
Mackenzie was selected to develop a needs assessment and conceptual design, forecast project costs, and create materials to aid in the bond campaign efforts for the development of a new 20,000 SF station for the City of Buckley.

A series of site and floor plan studies was developed and a visioning session was held with the Department and community...Learn more

Hood River Fire Station

Project
Mackenzie was hired by the City of Hood River to develop a needs assessment, investigate options for remodeling and expanding their existing headquarter station, and forecast remodel/expansion costs vs. options developed to construct a new station. Following the completion of the needs assessment phase of the project, Mackenzie was retained to complete the design and engineering of the project, assist the City with public bidding process and participate with the City in the construction administration phase of the project. Construction of the 21,500 SF facility commenced in May 2011 and was...Learn more

Mt. Scott Fire Station

Project
This 12,000 SF, two-story facility houses two coed battalion crews. The simple and clear floor plan creates efficient divisions to form three distinct zones: the apparatus bay, living quarters, and public areas. These three zones have been used to establish three different volumes, breaking the building into smaller masses, a more interesting shape, and a human scale. The apparatus area includes two drive-through bays and a half bay for a future battalion chief vehicle. Semi-private bunkrooms with locker facilities, a day room with balcony, and an exercise room provide accommodations for 10...Learn more
