Project Location: Selma, Oregon

Through a bond sale Illinois Valley Fire Protection District was able to complete a much needed facility replacement of three rural fire stations and construct a new building to house their administrative services. All three stations contained personnel living quarters - sleeping rooms, day rooms, kitchens and baths, in addition to the apparatus bays. The buildings were designated as essential facilities, so they needed to meet additional seismic design requirements. The original contract was for just the three fire stations, but the design/construction team saved the district enough money they were able to also construct the administrative building with the bond proceeds. The District had such a good working relationship with Oregon Architecture, it insisted on using us for that phase of the project.

In addition to all the program space required for their main function, each station also provided community meeting space for the rural communities they served.
