City of Boise Fire Station 4
"Taking direction from city staff, the station incorporates many design characteristics found in early 20th-century buildings in the area by providing a strong street orientation; the use of historical building materials, such as brick and stone; the integration of arches; and the incorporation of a small public square for the community. While the station reflects aspects of the past, the station also offers a new vision of urban growth in the community."
"This project was designed using the new Boise City Green Construction Code, which has many parallel targets as LEED but is focused on regional objectives. Concurrent to this project, the team designed a similar station, Fire Station 8, for the city using LEED v4 to better understand certification costs, performance and public perception/reaction. The intent of this effort is to compare the two projects’ sustainable attributes to further inform public policy moving forward."
