Allen + Shariff Salisbury Office completed the MEP engineering design services for a new $6 million fire station located at NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, VA. NASA Wallops Flight Facility was established in 1945 and currently has over 1,000 full time employees.
The two-story, 16,700 square foot fire station is used full time by NASA fire fighters whom reside in the station. The building includes a training room, reporting and firefighter office, physical training room, bunk-rooms, a turnout gear storage room, a laundry and decontamination room, a maintenance shop, a S.C.B.A. compressor room, dayroom, dining area and kitchen. Due to the station/s proximity to the ocean, the exterior shell of the building is being designed to combat hurricane winds in excess of 150 mph, and prevent deterioration from salt air and wind-blown sand. The project received a LEED Silver certification.
