Easley Fire Station No. 2

Easley Fire Department
Easley, SC

When the City of Easley, SC determined the need for a new fire station for the growing Glenwood Road neighborhood, they relied upon the experience of DP3 Architects to guide them through the planning, design, and construction process.  The City identified three key objectives for the project:

  • Make use of conventional construction methods for permanence
  •  Utilize materials that would minimize long-term maintenance costs
  • Develop a design that would be compatible with the surrounding residential neighborhood in which it was located

The design response met the following criteria:

  •  The conventional buildings systems produced a 75-year building
  • The total masonry exterior and sloped, asphalt-shingled roof provide a nearly maintenance-free exterior
  • The building scale and exterior materials reflect those of the neighboring homes

Features of the 6,800-square-foot, two-story station include:

  • Two double-stacked, drive-through apparatus bays
  • Cascade room, equipment and gear storage, and de-con area
  • Dispatch office
  • Living quarters and dayroom for firefighters
  • Conference/training room
  • Fire pole access between upper and lower levels
  • Emergency electrical power generation system
