    214 percent increase in space.

More room for modern emergency response. The Seattle firefighters working out of the original Fire Station 38 outgrew the historic, 2,700 SF facility, and needed more room to support modern emergency response. Reid Middleton provided structural engineering for an 8,500 SF, two-story fire station located in the Ravenna/Bryant neighborhood of Seattle. This station has two apparatus bays and features a unique curved roof design. It’s built of a variety of materials, including wood, concrete, masonry, and steel. The station was designed as an essential facility per the International Building Code with City of Seattle amendments. The Station also achieved a LEEDĀ Gold Certification.
