The Prototype Fire Station for the Columbus Consolidated Government was developed to allow for flexible bay and housing unit sizing. The Firm of Record was JRA Architects, Inc. where Sam Andras, AIA and Alex Griggs, AIA both served as Vice Presidents. Alex Griggs was responsible for design of the Prototype along with final design and construction administration of Fire Stations number 3, 7, 10, 12, and 14.
The Prototype was developed through an Integrated Design process aimed at development of a Fire Station Program. The steering committee included representatives of the City’s Operation and Maintenance staff, City’s Construction Division, and Fire Department along with the entire Design Team. The program was then utilized for development of the flex-prototype.
