Fire Station No. 2 serves the people and businesses of this the rapidly growing suburb of Charlotte.

The station includes three drive-through bays, a decontamination room, a commercial-grade kitchen, a dayroom, a private patio, individual showers and dormitory-style bedrooms to accommodate as many as 10 members.

The facility is designed to last at least 50 years. It can expand to add additional bays or sleep rooms as needed. The city wanted the floor plan to be easily adaptable to other site conditions, which allows the city to use Fire Station No. 2 as a prototype for future fire stations.

Both interior and exterior finish selections were made for their durability, with abuse-resistant wall treatments, high-impact tile flooring, and masonry details that lend an aesthetically pleasing and protective quality to the facility.

This project utilized the Construction Manager at Risk delivery method. Stewart-Cooper-Newell Architects worked side-by-side with the general contractor to complete this showcase project for the city of Harrisburg.
