Meridian Fire Station 6
Meridian, Idaho is a rapidly growing community. Consequently, expandability was an overarching design goal in this station’s layout and functionality. Located close to the current city limits, there’s little doubt this station’s response demand will increase as the city continues to grow farther and farther out. Provisions were incorporated for adding a future third bay, additional sleep rooms without compromising today’s functionality.
Rice Fergus Miller and Pivot North Architecture have collaborated to provide master planning, programming and architectural design services.
This station celebrated its grand opening in March 2020. It is in action responding to COVID-19 cases. The isolated decontamination areas we designed into the station are well ventilated and efficient for cleaning gear and personal protective equipment.
