Central Oregon Fire Stations
As active members of the Central Oregon community, we were honored to be part of these fire station projects. Both facilities were designed by Portland’s Soderstom Architects and built by Prineville-based Griffin Construction. And both were constructed with current code forces and back up generators in mind, making them efficient and safe.
For the Pilot Butte Station #306 in Bend, this was a brand new fire station for the city. The 10,000 sq/ft building featured custom red carriage-style garage doors that were reminiscent of the original doors on the downtown fire station that was built in 1919.
“While the other fire stations blend in with a craftsman-style lodge look, creating the historic design for the Pilot Butte station was an opportunity to honor the original downtown firehouse.” In keeping with the tradition, our red carriage-house style doors added an iconic and recognizable facade that replicated the old fire station look.
The Tumalo station was constructed next to the town’s original building, but with a modern design to match other buildings in the area. The 8,636 sq/ft building replaced the ‘70s station next to it, which became storage for the fire department. Whereas the bend project had the custom red garage doors, the Tumalo station featured sleek, black doors that helped to keep with the modern look and feel of the station.
