Little Rock moves into its First LEED designed Fire Station.
The City of Little Rock now requires that their projects achieve LEED certification. The new Station #23 is expected to do just that. Completed in December of 2012, the project is currently seeking its LEED certification. The design utilized solar orientation, green products and site impact studies. Also, the station has the latest technology in exhaust EVAC systems, station alerting systems, and supports both a city and private network.
The design team, lead by JBP Architects, not only focused on the building but also several hundred feet of creek bed that lie behind the station. The creek was extensively studied to find ways to keep it a viable habitat and a resource for the community. "The intention is to restore the natural habitat while employing low impact strategies on the building site." said project Architect H. F. Bunny Brown IV, AIA LEED AP.
Natural stone, brick and cementitious siding are used to wrap the exterior, and landscaping was designed to screen day to day activities from the residential neighborhood.
