Newbern Fire Station

Newbern AL / 2004 / 5th Year Project

The Newbern Volunteer Fire Department and Town Hall is the first new public building in Newbern for 110 years. It houses three fire trucks and satisfies the town's needs for a place to house elections, council meetings, volunteer firefighter classes, fund-raising and community gatherings.The building is supported by a wood and metal truss structure, which is enclosed by translucent polycarbonate panels, protected from the sun by cedar slats and topped-off with a galvanized aluminum roof.

Inside there is a mezzanine level for fire fighting classes and at the ground floor a bathroom and kitchen. Not only was the project conceived and built in just two years, but at the same time the team raised $100,000 in materials donations.
