Chandler Fire Administration Building

The Chandler Fire Administration project in the heart of historic Chandler, Arizona includes a public service building and a landscaped public plaza. This urban infill project replaces a former parking lot. The three story masonry building houses office space for fire department chiefs and personnel as well as conference and classrooms, a fitness center, and an emergency operations center. The strategic design of sheltered outdoor spaces expands the usability of the 18,600 SF enclosed space. The new plaza provides ample attractive open space, and also aids pedestrians in way-finding between the adjacent civic buildings. The project utilizes state of the art equipment and building technology to save resources and maximize environmental quality, while preserving key program elements of tradition and public service.
