Alexandria Fire Station 210

In 2009, the design team led by LeMay Erickson Willcox Architects was retained by the City of Alexandria to provide the design and “Bridging Documents” for a 39,000 s.f. Design/build public safety building. The building occupies a sloping site adjacent to an existing Police Shooting Range and incorporates the City’s automobile impound lot as part of the new design. The three story facility combines an operational fire station oriented toward Eisenhower Avenue with the City of Alexandria’s Professional Development Center (PDC) oriented to the rear of the property at the lower level of the site. Served by the large personnel parking lot, the PDC consists of two three-story training bays with mezzanines, a four-story training tower, several classrooms, administrative offices, a large exercise room shared with the station, dedicated shower facilities for the trainees, video production studio, and personnel lounge. The operational station provides four back-in bays with a dedicated front apron, separated parking for visitors to the station, kitchen/dining/dayroom, outdoor terrace, 18 private bunkrooms with pass-though lockers, battalion chief quarters, and administrative offices.

The final construction documents and construction administration were completed by Scheibel Construction. The facility opened in 2015.
