Houston Fire Station No. 84 Groundbreaking

On March 18, 2014, Jeff Choyce, Lawrence Watkins and Darryl Rubscha of the Houston office of BRW Architects along with the Mayor of Houston Annise Parker, Houston Fire Chief Terry Garrison, Houston Fire Assistant Chief Mark Donovan, Houston General Services Department Project Manager Jack Welker and other City and Fire Department officials attended the Ground Breaking Ceremony for the new Houston Fire Station #84.

Different from any other fire station in the city, Houston took a more modern approach with this fire station design.  The 15,500 square foot project features five apparatus bays, sleeping and support spaces that will accommodate four shifts of 16 people per shift with an estimated cost of approximately $6.6 million and an anticipated completion date of December 2014.  In order to better meet the heating and cooling needs of the new station, Houston elected to use a new energy efficient ground source heat pump system that is projected to cut energy costs in half.
