Project Manager, Jeff McDowell, attended the ribbon cutting for Fire Station #3 in Plant City, FL. WJA began design on this $3 million project in 2016.
The station is a 8,400 sf fire station that shares site with the existing tourist information center building. The three-bay station is equipped with seven private dorms with individual bathrooms for privacy, making it easier to accommodate mixed-gender crews. The building features exposed brick that works structurally as well as aesthetically. The building also features polished concrete floors, solid-surface countertops, limited paint and conduits on the roof to add solar panels, which will increase the building’s efficiency. The new station also includes a display bay out front for the City’s 1927 American LaFrance fire engine.
