This is a new two-story, five apparatus bay, fire/rescue facility for the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. The facility is approximately 28,000 sf and will provide living and training areas on two floors as well as five high bays for fire and rescue apparatus.
The facility has been designed to handle airport runway emergencies as well as landside and City fire emergencies, and will be serviced by an emergency generator to prevent any disruption of service to the community.
The structural system utilized for the building was a reinforced masonry structural frame with some interior columns and beams. The second floor and roof is comprised of precast, prestressed concrete joists and a cast-in-place concrete slab.
