New Facility for Philadelphia’s Navy Yard
MA is working on three projects for the City of Philadelphia.
1. Under contract to Hill International we are designing a new facility for the Navy Yard that may include
- land side station
- marine unit
- training facility
2. Working with the City and Hill, we are also designing a series of modular plug-in elements to help bring the City’s existing fire stations up to currents standards. Typical elements are Decon/laundry, SCBA clean and fill, details to prevent apparatus bay contamination from entering the living space, and gender issues related to bunking and bathrooms.
3. MA is also providing firematic expertise to Shift Capital and KSS Architects in the development of a proposed design/build of a City-wide Fire Department Logistics Facility.
Construction of the new Schoharie Fire Station is complete. The 20,313 sq ft facility replaces the former station that was destroyed in 2011 when the community experienced serious flooding during Hurricane Irene. This 20,313 sq ft station includes a 6,000 sq ft apparatus bay, firematic support, offices, meeting/training room, exercise & firefighter’s room. Mitchell Associates provided a full set of services to the Niagara Engine Company #6, the all-volunteer Fire Company that has provided fire protection to the community since the 1830’s, including the following: feasibility study, programming, schematic design, estimate, assistance with FEMA grant, construction documents and construction administration.
Construction continues for the City of Peekskill’s new Fire Headquarters that will be a state-of-the-art fire protection facility designed to serve as a clear sign of the City’s confidence in its future. The two-story, 30,000 square foot facility will be completed in 2018. The new firehouse will consolidate five existing facilities and will include up-to-date safety features. Included in the design is a Fire Museum that will highlight the Fire Department’s 190 years of proud service to the Community.
