In the heart of Bryan/College Station, Station #6 serves the area’s main commercial corridor as well as Texas A&M University. This modern facility enhances the area while embracing the City’s strict design criteria by using neighboring materials to link the style throughout the City.
The building’s presence is softened at the pedestrian level by incorporating a “time line plaza”, a water feature, and native landscaping. Inside the “hose tower” entry, the station features a memorabilia area and a multipurpose room which is used for training and community groups.
Durability of materials, efficiency and flow were the main design intentions considering every second counts during a response and this building is occupied 24/7 by 3 shifts of 14 firefighters. Many small, overlooked details transform this superior facility into a home away from home. From fire poles, a high tech alerting system, an outdoor grilling area, a large family-style dining room and the acoustic ceiling of the bay, this state-of-the-art facility is truly one of a kind.
