PROJECT BRIEF

The volunteer firefighters of Limerick Fire Company selected KCBA Architects to design and Gorski Engineering to construct our new 20,300 square foot, state of the art station to replace the existing aging facility at the company's current location.

The apparatus floor provides five full depth drive thru apparatus bays. Additional apparatus support includes a shop, engineers office, SCBA shop, decon room and dedicated turn out gear storage.

EMS office and two separate sleeping quarters for EMS staff on duty.

Sleeping provisions at the station include four separate two-man dorm rooms and two larger open bunk rooms capable of sleeping 10 males and 6 females.
