Kincora Safety Center

LeMay Erickson Willcox Architects was retained by Turner Construction to work with Polleo Group for the design-build delivery for the new Kincora Safety Center.

A new station for Loudoun County, Virginia, the Kincora Development provides fire and rescue services to the Northeastern portion of the County. The program called for 18,000 s.f. of space, including four drive-through apparatus bays, a training room for 50 personnel, offices, and dormitory for 20. The kitchen and dining rooms are open- plan and located on the front corner of the building. Adjacent to the kitchen and day room is a patio for outdoor cooking and dining. In addition to the standard PPE storage, SCBA, EMS, decontamination area and maintenance shop, there are offices and accommodations for a battalion chief.

The building is targeting LEED Certification. Sustainable design strategies include low SRI roof and site, regional materials, recycled content materials, low VOC interior finishes and low flow faucets, shower heads and fixtures.
