Fire Station Concept

Oak Ridge, Tennessee

A key component of any building design is the relationship of the facility with the context of the site. For the Y-12 Fire Station, there are no structures immediately adjacent to the project site to the north, east or west and a rather nondescript brick building exists to the south. A number of structures are visible from the project site and represent a wide range of materials, colors and architectural styles.

As a result, the design of the Y-12 Fire Station can set a new aesthetic for this area of the Y-12 campus.

The design of the proposed facility by the Blaine Construction Design/Build team uses the aesthetic of the New Hope Center that currently acts as the primary introduction point for visitors to the Y-12 campus. The center features brick veneer with complementary brick banding, silver/gray metal panels and aluminum frame storefront window systems with tinted glazing. These elements are included in the proposed Y-12 Fire Station design.

The design team added a signature iconic design element: a tower that will feature a single sloped pitched roof and translucent glazing panels. The tower also will include the stairs from the main level to the mezzanine level.
