To keep up with the need to protect the increasing residential and commercial area around the lake in Acworth, Cobb County added the new Fire Station 28. The 3 bay drive-thru fire station efficiently houses apparatus bays, a day room, dormitory space, kitchen, offices, restrooms, laundry room, training room, a fitness room, and a decontamination room. Separate facilities were also designed for female and male fire fighters. A fueling station was designed at the rear of the facility with a dumpster/recycling area and covered storage for lawn equipment. An on-site well provides irrigation to the landscape.
The fire station also shares the facility with a county tag office. The tag office has its own entrance and parking keeping fire services completely separate and any citizens out of harm as apparatus leave to answer a call.
Chad Alexander Smith, AIA, LEED® AP was the Lead Designer, Project Architect, Architect of Record and LEED® Administrator for the fire station and tag office while employed with Precision Planning, Inc. overseeing all phases of design, specification writing, permitting, bidding and construction administration.
