This multi-faceted project improves fire station & city hall for metropolitan suburb.
This multi-faceted project for the City of Nichols Hills includes a partial renovation of existing fire station, improved security in the City Hall administration office, a renovation to the exterior façade, and a new outdoor space for Fire Department and City Hall staff.
The Nichols Hills Fire Station addition and renovation project expands the Fire Department’s training and response capabilities with a new large training and conference room, new offices for department management and additional staff, a new First Response Command Center, a new Dispatch Center and a new workout facility, as well as upgrades to the existing bunk room.
Next door, the City Hall administration office also received a remodel which provides new security upgrades in the front offices, a new transaction counter, new desks for the City Clerk and other personnel and security glazing to protect the City staff.
While the City Hall building has received several additions and upgrades over the years, the City wanted its entry point redefined with upgrades to the exterior façade. This upgrade unifies the building aesthetically into a cohesive piece, anchored with a tower-like spire to match the grand clock tower on the west end of the building, which is a key identifying feature of City Hall.
In addition, there is a new outdoor space on the east end of the building for Fire Department employees and their families that is capable of accommodating gatherings for the entire City staff. This outdoor patio supports the Fire Department’s goal of creating a home away from home for their staff to feel more comfortable when not on emergency calls.
FSB completed the interior/exterior fire station renovation, the perimeter wall, gates, pergolas, grill area and City Hall office. We partnered with Gould Evans Architects to complete the new addition portion of the project with FSB providing construction administration throughout.
