Canyon Rim Trail Phase 3 Design

Fire Station 3 Bunkroom and Roof Improvements

Fire Station 3 was opened in 2008 and was constructed with an overhead air conditioning and radiant floor heating system.  Over time, fire department staff have noted that these separate systems compete and do not maintain adequate comfort levels.  

Improvements for Fire State 3 will include:

  • Modification of HVAC System
  • Removal and replace of drop ceiling in bunkrooms
  • Add thermostats to bunkrooms
  • Add Exterior Insulation Finish System to exterior bunkroom walls
  • Replace windows in bunkroom
  • Replace the Thermoplastic Polyolefin roof system over the living areas
  • Remove the equipment screen and replace with a railing system.
  • Add low voltage heating loops on the metal roof and inside new gutters and downspouts.

Work is expected to begin in September 2018 and Final Completion March 2019.
