Architect: McCool Carlson Green
UNIT COMPANY and Bethel Federal Services together (under our Mentor-Protege Joint Venture: Bethel Federal-UNIT JV) were awarded the New Fire Station at Clear AFS, Alaska in late Spring of 2018.
The new 20,667 SF Fire Station conforms to the design characteristics outlined in the Clear AFS Facilities Excellence Plan for the Composite Area. The structure has two distinct volumes - Residential and Administrative wing and an apparatus bay. The residential and administrative wing is a simple two story structure which forms the front of the building. The apparatus bay is a large square volume with four drive through bays. This wing sits behind the long end of the administrative and residential wing and has a minimum 17-foot height clearance. Translucent panels will fill the Bay with daylight from above.
The structure of the administrative and residential wing features a single double loaded corridor with two access points to the apparatus bay on each floor. This configuration minimizes response time conforming to the
