The new Normandy Park Fire Station 29 is a 20,000-square-foot facility with six dorm rooms, a maintenance bay, a fueling island station, four fold doors (which open and provide a clear exit in five seconds), a fire training classroom and an emergency generator.

The exterior was designed using masonry, wood and glass. The sleek, modern design retains an old-world feel with the large half-circle windows above the four fold doors.

The alternating earth-tone CMU masonry design will provide years of aesthetic appeal and service to the community.
