Built in the 1930’s, Station 1 had received a myriad of improvements over the years, including a second story addition. ZCS was hired to design a renovation that improved the form and function of the station while addressing its seismic deficiencies through a State of Oregon SRGP grant. Through a collaborative design process we were able to maintain the station’s original historic brick façade while establishing a contemporary balance using modern materials and methods.
Due to the number of additions and alterations over the years, many different floor elevations were found throughout the station which limited access for those with disabilities or injuries and created structural deficiencies. After finding the second floor was built over the original roof structure, we worked with Modoc Contracting to determine that demolishing two-thirds of the second floor would be the most economical solution to meet the demands of the seismic grant program. This effort allowed us to improve the overall quality of life for those fire fighters living in the facility by updating the sleeping rooms, common areas, and kitchen.
