Philomath Fire Station

Gerding was brought on to provide seismic retrofits to the existing rural fire station and to construct an annex to address the growing needs of the fire station. The final size of the facility was 23,120 sf. As an essential facility, it was critical that it remain 100% operational during construction without impact to response times. Gerding was invited back for additional phases of work which included remodel and expansion to their current facility, improving living quarters (including the kitchen), adding a community museum, enhancing MEP systems and equipment bay areas. We worked with the architect to determine the most cost-effective way to seismically stabilize the existing hose tower, ultimately deciding to reinforce the CMU blocks rebar and shotcrete. Major work was done to the roof. The final phase included the addition of an annex, which relocated the 3 dormitories into the new space, accommodating 8 dormitories for the growing station.
