The city's first LEED certified project

The City of Cincinnati's first new fire station in 24 years and first-ever LEED Certified public building extends out toward the street, inviting in the surrounding community-a welcome change and thoughtful solution to what had been a narrow, brownfield site. The design features an 18.6 percent increase in energy efficiency compared to a traditional building, and daylight fills 75 percent of the interior. Designed to encourage optimal performance of the staff and provide them with a comfortable home, the station embodies the City's concern for quality design and its bold commitment to sustainability. The two-story station has three apparatus bays, living and sleeping quarters, fitness facilities, conference areas, decontamination facilities, administrative spaces and supports on-site training.
