  • In a Tight Spot

    With a zero lot-line clearance, the project worked in a small site with a big need.

A fiery gem atop Seattle’s Crown Hill. The City of Seattle has an important duty to protect the 6,119 residents who call Crown Hill their home, especially from fire. To that end, the City needed to replace an outdated station. Reid Middleton provided the structural design of a new two-story, 10,400 SF fire station, which houses one engine company. Since the site was so small the building had to be constructed directly adjacent to a property line with zero set-back; so our design carefully sequenced construction to prevent damaging adjacent buildings. The new station, built of steel and masonry, received a LEED Gold Certification for its energy-efficient design and sustainable features. Reid Middleton also provided the structural design for the signature art piece located at the station’s entry.
