Beachwood Fire Station No. 2
LeMay Erickson Willcox Architects was selected by the City of Beachwood to design a new fire station to replace their original Station No. 2 which they have outgrown. The new 26,000 s.f. station is a “gateway” building constructed on an undeveloped and highly-visible corner site, bordered by a residential neighborhood, an office complex, a senior living facility, and a cemetery.
The 2-story facility features an open lobby, private bunkrooms for 10 career fire fighters, residential style restroom/shower facilities, open kitchen/dining room, dayroom, large fitness training room with a 2nd level mezzanine, and administrative offices. The station features 4 apparatus bays with bi-fold doors, bay support spaces, and numerous on-site training features including a hose/training tower and a training mezzanine above the apparatus bays. The program also includes an Emergency Operations Center and Police Department Dispatch Center.
