Donaldson Center Fire Station

Posted on March 6, 2023

DP3 Architects is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with Hogan Construction on a renovation and expansion of the Donaldson Center Fire Department located at 2291 Perimeter Road in Greenville, South Carolina. This project will include partial demolition of the existing 1960’s-built station to make way for the construction of a new 4,500 square-foot addition. The new construction will provide ample space for bunk rooms, a larger kitchen and dayroom, exterior patio, support spaces, new office layout, larger fitness room, as well as a state-of-the-art decontamination room and gear laundry space.

The facility will be designed with the newest technologies in fire safety and firefighting equipment, making it a safe and secure environment for firefighters and staff to work, rest, and train in. Whenever a fire district makes an investment into a fire station, they are investing in the future safety of their community and the firefighters that protect it. We are proud to be a part of this project for the Donaldson Center Fire Station and look forward to teaming with Hogan Construction to make this renovation and expansion a success.
