Fire Station 3


Client: City of Newport News, VA

DJG designed a replacement Station for the existing historic Fire Station 3 located in Hilton Village. This 15,882 sf Station includes three drive-through apparatus bays, bunking for 12 full-time career staff, Battalion Chief office and quarters, community and training room, and fitness room.

The building shell has been “hardened” to provide accommodations for the Fire Department during significant inclement weather. Building hardening includes emergency storm shutters, impact resistant glazing and increased structural design for wind. Sustainable design features include:

  • Stormwater harvesting for irrigation and truck washing
  • Energy efficient building envelope
  • Energy recovery unit
  • Natural ventilation

Fire Station 3 received Federal stimulus funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Assistance to Firefighters Station Construction Grants.
