Project: Fire Station No. 37
Client: City of Dallas
Architect: Dewberry Architects
Sitting on a 14,000 square foot structural slab, Dallas Fire Station 37 stands strong with fully reinforced CMU walls and large structural steel members. It houses four apparatus bays with heavy-duty bi-folding doors, a state of the art fitness room, a full access kitchen, and the City’s first training room to accommodate multiple stations.
A 12-man team can rest comfortably in the three spacious bunk rooms, while the Lieutenant, Captain, Battalion Chief, and Driver each have rooms of their own.
The exterior of the building is comprised of architectural block, metal panels, a TPO roofing system, and a vibrant fire-engine red canopy. DFS 37 has been rated LEED Gold, with 30 geothermal wells acting as heat pumps as deep as 325 feet into the ground. The building is also equipped with a fully-functional solar hot water heating system. With tile flooring, stainless steel finishes, and LED lighting, Dallas Fire Station 37 has a classic modern look that is one of a kind.
