ROSWELL, Ga. — Roswell Fire Station No. 4, designed by Alpharetta-based Pieper O’Brien Herr Architects, recently received the 2017 Project Achievement Award from the Construction Management Association of America South Atlantic Chapter.
The recently completed station, located on Old Alabama Road, is anchored by a tower displaying its station number. The LED light beacon at the top of the tower, normally white, turns red when the department is dispatched to an emergency.
The three-engine bay drive-through features bi-folding doors, which allows the building to remain secure while the firefighters are away from the station.
The architects worked with the Fire Chief and the firefighters to incorporate their ideas into the facility. The station was designed with bunk rooms, living room, large kitchen, laundry facilities, storage and a separate turn-out room to accommodate three shifts of 12 firemen.
The site features the first implementation of public art for a government building in Roswell, Bucket Brigade, designed by artist Peter Reiquam.
