Village of Newburgh Heights Fire Station and Service Department

Newburgh Heights, Ohio

DLZ was commissioned by the Village of Newburgh Heights, Ohio to provide complete architecture and engineering services associated with the renovation and conversion of a former warehouse into a new Fire Station and Service Department facility. The 12,925 SF building is located on a limited urban site.

The existing fire department facility had deteriorated and no longer met the needs of the Fire Department. In addition the existing station is located on highly desired parcel of land for future development and was recently sold for future development. As a result, this project included an aggressive schedule and required careful planning.

The Fire Station includes two apparatus bays and support spaces, locker room, toilet areas, sleeping quarters, day room. A fitness area, offices and additional storage on a partial mezzanine is provided. The Service Department includes vehicle repair areas, tool crib area, office space, break room, employee toilet room, and additional storage on a partial mezzanine. The design includes new mechanical, plumbing, fire protection, and electrical systems and associated fixtures and equipment.

A new exterior image was created, including masonry, pre-finished cement board and exterior insulation finish system. When completed, the new facility will complete the urban revitalization of the city block which includes a new Village Hall and Police Station facility.
