People are always asking me how is it that firefighters run into a burning building when everyone else is running out. Courage is the answer.
GuernseyTingle is the design lead for the recently awarded PPEA contract for the new 31,000 SF Williamsburg Fire Station. This facility will combine the functions of the fire station, fire administration, and the emergency operations center for the City of Williamsburg. Our design team, with Stewart Cooper Newell Architects, worked closely with the City, the Police, and Fire Department to develop a Public Safety Needs Assessments addressing site options, budgets, and projects’ sequencing while maintaining critical operations throughout construction. The new Fire Station will provide facilities that reflect the Department’s high performance, capture Williamsburg’s unique character, and contribute to our citizens’ safety for decades to come.
