The 14,400-sf, 2-story, $14 million firehouse features 3 full vehicle bays and accommodations for 13 firemen including locker rooms, dormitories, a kitchen and recreation facilities. The building has a pile-supported foundation, concrete mat slab, steel frame structure and metal stud floor joists with an exterior skin of plaster, metal panels and glass. Fire Station No. 1 is the busiest in the nation as well as one of San Francisco’s oldest. The existing fire station was demolished to make way for the expansion of the new San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Civil engineering services included onsite grading, drainage and utility plans along with site demolition, erosion control, stormwater control plans and construction cross sections and details.
