ST. JOHN'S KIAWAH FIRE STATION NO. 6
The Kiawah Fire Station design is for a new 3-bay fire station to replace an outdated, existing facility. The initial scope of the project included the analysis of the existing station, to determine a cost comparison of renovating the station versus building a new facility. Due to flood and seismic issues, it was determined to be a better long term decision to replace the old structure, and construct a new station above the flood zone, that also meets current seismic and hurricane requirements. The new station will be a 10,000 sf facility that includes 12 bunk rooms, a fay room, kitchen, apparatus bay and support facilities.
