Aurora fire station 16
As the City of Aurora continues to grow in population and developments, HB&A has provided architecture services on numerous projects for the Public Works Department on an On-Call contract. Fire Station #16, located at 6500 North Liverpool Street, is the second new fire station designed by HB&A, as a CM/GC project.
Fire Station #16 was designed to be a state-of-the-art station, providing quicker response times for the ever growing surrounding communities. The overall design included: 21-ft high drive through apparatus bays so that fire truck engines could be maintained in the bays; bunker gear lockers that are separately ventilated for health reasons; pressurized residential side of the station to keep out diesel and other particulates; a mezzanine area for training and storage; indoor and outdoor fitness areas; and two slide poles for easy access to the apparatus bays from the dorm areas above.
