Posted on November 26, 2012

DP3 Architects, Ltd. is pleased to announce that the firm has received an Honor Award from The Fire Industry Equipment Research Organization (F.I.E.R.O) in partnership with the International Association of Fire Chiefs for the design of the Parker District Fire Station No. 1 in Greenville. This is the second consecutive Honor Award presented to the firm after having garnered last year’s award for the Town of Surfside Beach Fire Station Headquarters.

The F.I.E.R.O awards program recognizes excellence in fire station design and construction. An Honor Award is presented to projects that exemplify excellence in all aspects of planning and design including site planning, functional considerations, and architectural image.

The new Parker District Fire Station No. 1 is a 20,000-square-foot, two-story facility is intended to be reminiscent of the architectural style of the historic textile mills that once flourished in the District. A firefighter’s memorial was included in the project and features brick salvaged from the original station. The station is equipped with four drive-through apparatus bays which can accommodate a variety of apparatus types.
