ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Luckett & Farley provided full architectural and engineering services, including feasibility study, for the expansion and renovation of St. Matthews Fire District Station Two facility on Brownsboro Road.
At the time, Station Two was approximately 8,100 SF and was sharing space with the Harrods Creek Fire District. The objectives of this project were to identify an appropriate location for the fitness and weight training area; expand the living quarters to accommodate 24 beds; increase the locker, laundry, and shower facilities; enlarge the kitchen and dietary support areas; and provide a separation between the dining and recreation areas. A second-floor space was created above the new ambulance bay for meeting and conference space.
The final design focused on two key features: development of an efficient layout that allowed as much of the existing footprint to remain intact and focus on the additions maintaining the current aesthetic of the building while also providing an increase in daylight and the quality of space.
Additional design elements included exterior bearing walls constructed of CMU materials with brick cladding matching the existing facility, rubber and sealed concrete flooring, LED lighting, independent HVAC system, exposed structure ceiling, new drains and water supply for laundry equipment, exterior patio, new commercial ceiling fans, full tiled bathroom and showers, and new kitchen.
