Between 2005 and 2013, KBA commissioned 5 fire stations as part of a City of Seattle program to upgrade, renovate or replace neighborhood fire stations to meet current seismic and mechanical/electrical systems standards. These projects included the 39,000 square-foot Historic Landmark Fire Station 2, and 60,000 square-foot Fire Station 10 which houses the Fire Alarm Center and the Emergency Operations Center. Two of the projects, Fire Stations 10 and 14 were LEED Silver projects. Services and deliverables began during design development and went through 1 year of post occupancy, exceeding most LEED Enhanced commissioning requirements for all 5 projects.

Systems Commissioned:

  • HVAC, including controls and fire alarm system integration
  • Domestic water heating
  • Lighting controls
  • Emergency electrical systems and building power failure and recovery
  • Backup power generator
  • Security/access system
  • Fire alarm

A wide range of HVAC systems were used, including variable refrigerant flow, vehicle exhaust removal and bunker gear drying room ventilation.

Fire Station 10 also included mission critical integrated systems testing.
