Charlotte Fire Station 42 / Charlotte, NC


The Details

Charlotte Fire Station No. 42 provides protection in the Eastland Mall area of Charlotte, as well as serves as an anchor to the on-going revitalization of the Central Avenue corridor. This three-bay station houses a ladder and an Engine Company. A LEED principle-based Green Building Study was performed for this project that became the basis for the department’s sustainable building standards. This project is 11,960 square feet. Two parallel retaining walls around the perimeter of the fire station site were required to raise the proposed building to the elevation of Central Avenue, as the surrounding site is substantially lower in elevation. The fire station significantly reduces the amount of impervious area on the parcel, and as a result, also reduce the quantity of total stormwater runoff from the parcel.
