City of Jacksonville Fire Station No. 40

Auld & White was retained by the City of Jacksonville to complete the design-build of Fire Station #40. The new two-story, free-standing fire station, consisting of structural steel, poured concrete, a composite deck second floor, a bar joist, and metal deck roof structure, and a 12” concrete tilt-panel wall system, was designed to withstand 150-mph winds at three-second gusts and the wave action created by a 14’ storm surge. This land & marine-based facility is used as a post-storm operations/search and rescue center.

This fire station is LEED Certified.

This delivery method can at times be difficult, but I found that our team approached the project with a very cooperative spirit and was able to handle its challenges in a very proactive manner.
