Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport Rescue and Firefighting
DP3 Architects provided local design assistance services for a new replacement Airport Rescue Firefighting (ARFF) Station at the GSP International Airport working with the lead design architect, Leo A Daly.
The GSP ARFF provides fire protection services, emergency response, hazard mitigation, and evacuation assistance to the flying public. This facility is essential to airport operations and safety.
The station is a new 21,000-square-foot, single-story facility with a 2,300-square-foot storage mezzanine and includes new aprons, drives, operable gates, modifications to existing parking areas, new stormwater detention pond, and site utilities. The new facility offers three times as much space as the current building.
All the features that are necessary for a rescue and firefighting facility are included in the design including 5 drive-through apparatus bays, 10 private dorm rooms, training room, day room/living area, fire administration offices, and support spaces for this land- and air-side emergency department.
