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.
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.
