TCA Architecture + Planning is excited to once again be participating in this annual Station Design Conference. During the conference, we will be leading the 1-on-one design focus work sessions, presenting on station design and building codes, and will have several of our projects discussed by other firms during “The Coolest Fire Stations on Earth” and “Sustainable Design” presentations.
Our code presentation: “Examines the specific application of building codes, standards, and accessibility requirements relative to fire station design. Mapping out the authorities having jurisdiction at the federal, state and local levels will be discussed. Risks and costs associated with varying code interpretations will be considered. The questions of to what extent does your station need to be ADA accessible, and if your two story station needs an elevator will be answered!”
Our firm’s success is largely due to embracing a new generation facility mindset over the decades we have been designing fire stations. Our forward thinking constantly allows us to build upon what we have done in the past. We believe in constantly raising the bar through innovative design. Each year we strive to share more of our knowledge and strategies with the fire community through lectures, conferences, and articles we write. This year we are excited to share this presentation on a topic we are particularly well-versed in. We look forward to the conference, connecting with past clients, current clients, potential associate architects, and others in the industry who share our niche in the fire industry.
