The 13,000 SF Headquarters Facility at Luzerne County Community College is the center acts as the central nervous system for the fire & rescue training campus. The building houses office spaces where instructors can remotely monitor training props throughout the campus, state of the art classrooms, equipment storage, and three beautiful pull thru apparatus bays treated with an abundance of natural daylight.
The building was designed to function in both education and emergency response. An emergency generator is capable of providing power to the structure in the event an additional shelter is needed during a local or regional disaster. Additional work on this project included the design of a new 5 story training tower with gas props. The basement of the building along with a portion of the first floor are configured to be class “A” capable and are isolated from the rest of the tower to prevent carbon particles from damaging the gas prop sensors.
