Bonita Springs Fire Station # 2 is a 7,325 square foot replacement for an existing facility in the same location. The site plan was designed in phases to allow continued operation of the existing station.
The new station includes living quarters for nine fire and rescue personnel. It features two drive through apparatus bays which can accommodate up to four vehicles. The office/communications center has been designed to be hardened to provide continuous operation during times of disaster.
The building design combines the district’s requirements of brick exterior walls and standing seam metal roof, with residentially scaled Florida vernacular bungalow detailing, to serve as the transition between commercial development and an established single family neighborhood.
