Kingsville Fire Department

Location

Baltimore County, MD

The Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company is located on one of the most challenging sites our firm has encountered. The department’s existing station was located in a region of Baltimore County that is notorious for soils that do not perc. Finding a different site for a new station was not an option due to land costs and response times. Constructed on a tight, skewed, and sloping site, this “spilt level” station serves as both a community center and a fully functioning department. The upper floor of the original 11,000 SF masonry structure is renovated to provide a community center with a full commercial kitchen that is grade accessible. The lower level of the building, which originally served as a bunk and operations area will be completely gutted and renovated, to tie into a new 17,500 SF addition. The completed building includes a classroom capable of seating 45, large operations offices, a large command office/command center, a board room, a fitness center, lockers, private showers, space for 21 bunks, a department kitchen, and a dining and day room designed to comfortably seat 18 people. Anchoring the end of the building are 7 full-size apparatus bays that will house a wide range of apparatus including a swift water rescue squad.
