Huntley Fire Protection District – Station No. 1

The new Huntley Fire Protection District (HFPD) – Station 1 project is a 45,915 SF remodel and new building addition. The new facility serves as the district’s headquarters, as well as a fire station and maintenance facility. The new station includes administrative offices, firefighter living quarters, training facilities, fitness center and a maintenance / vehicle storage area.

The preconstruction team worked closely with the HFPD to understand their needs and desires in their new station, meeting on a weekly basis to review design concepts and the project budget. To help provide the most efficient design, several design iterations were reviewed with the HFPD that showed different options for integrating the administrative space with the firefighter living quarters.

The exterior of the new addition incorporates a traditional yet modern appearance for the new fire station, like a large glass exterior wall at the entrance lobby that showcases an antique fire engine. Site improvements included additional parking for visitors and improved access to the maintenance garage. The design also includes an outdoor patio for the firefighters’ living quarters.

Project Highlights

  • The building features numerous sustainable design elements, including in-floor radiant heat, high-efficiency building heating and cooling systems, LED lighting and more.
  • Boldt delivered the construction of the new fire station both on time and within the initial project budget.
  • To help expediate the installation of the enclosure system for winter conditions, the exterior wall system was prefabricated using steel studs and sheathing in panelized sections. This shortened the enclosure schedule from weeks to days, saving time and money.
