Seattle Fire Station 38

Seattle, WA

Seattle Fire Station 38 is located on a reclaimed brownfield in the Hawthorne Hills neighborhood, and replaces a historic single-truck station. Designers wanted to create a building that is clearly identifiable as a fire station and also functions well for firefighters. Apparatus support and offices are located in a single-story adjacent to the apparatus bays. A two-story section includes the kitchen, day room and training room on the second floor, with offices and bunking rooms on the ground floor. Rain gardens treat and discharge rainwater into storm drains. About 95 percent of construction waste was diverted from the landfill. The station has been recognized for sustainable design, with LEED Gold certification. It was also recognized for how well it functions, with a gold honor award from the Fire Industry Equipment Research Organization. Corstone completed the 8,328 SF facility on an extremely tight site, with limited access and parking available.
