Fire Station 10 Replacement, Seattle, WA
Owner: City of Seattle
Architect: Weinstein A|U
This new facility provides a central location for Fire Station 10, which serves the Pioneer Square/International District area; the city’s Emergency Operations Center, used as a central command during emergencies; and the Fire Alarm Center, responsible for dispatching fire department units.
The project achieved Silver LEED certification with a green roof, water recovery system and more efficient HVAC system.
Heating and cooling efficiency is gained through the use of variable air volume boxes and variable speed drives, carbon dioxide sensors in high occupancy spaces, a DDC system, “free cooling” through the use of outside air, high efficiency filters, waterside economizers, UVC germicidal lights in the air handlers, and no CFC-based refrigerants in the cooling systems.
