Winchester Fire Station #1

Winchester, Tennessee

Allen & Hoshall was retained by the Town of Winchester to provide Architectural and Engineering services to renovate an existing 11,900 SF building for the design of a functional 21st Century Main Fire Station.

The building was originally constructed in 1964 as an automotive sales and service dealership.  In 1970 there was an addition to the main building and the facility operated in that capacity until 2005.  Thereafter the facility housed a custom window manufacturer until recently.

The Town of Winchester was excited to re-purpose the facility due to its location on a major access road into town and the ability to provide a new municipal facility on a previously run-down site.  The facility provided an opportunity to design a state-of-the-art facility with pull-through apparatus bays and adequate support space to ensure the safety of the fire station staff.  Additionally, this allowed the fire station to be moved from the existing confines of the in-town location adjacent to the City Hall.

The facility is zoned into three areas which consist of Administrative/Office, Apparatus Bays, and Residential Areas.  The administrative space includes a large area for the display of an antique fire engine and equipment off the main entry lobby as well as Office and Conference room spaces.  The 5,360 SF apparatus area features three 80-foot pull-through bays and one partial bay for an EMS vehicle.  Finally, the residential areas provide space for nine sleeping rooms, restroom, a dayroom/kitchen area, decontamination space, and workshop areas.

The approximate 1-1/2-acre site provided the opportunity for separate vehicular circulation for the fire/emergency equipment with full pull-in to the station and direct exit to the adjacent main road as well as ample space for staff and public parking separate from the emergency vehicle circulation.
