Stillwater Fire District: Station No. 3 – Mechanicville, New York
This newly built fire house for the Stillwater Fire District – Arvin Hart Fire Company replaced an aging pre-engineered metal building. The original firehouse was unusable in the winter months due to poor insulation. The nearly 4,700 sq.ft. of conditioned space is laid out into two new apparatus bays, a command vehicle bay and a meeting room for an updated volunteer work space. The construction of structural steel girders and rafters allowed for open apparatus bays. Masonry shear walls provided the lateral system and ensured a long service life for the repeated wet environment that Stillwater’s equipment sees.
