On the City of Corinth Fire House, EIKON proposed and then designed several value engineering ideas that helped reduce the construction budget by $200,000.
In lieu of using a brick facade, EIKON designed the exterior using an integral color split face concrete masonry unit. To save on energy costs EIKON’s mechanical engineers designed a VRF HVAC system to precisely regulate the temperature in the fire station and control humidity.
EIKON reduced the number of bays from four to three in the Corinth Fire House with the capability to expand in the future. The training tower serves three functions in the facility. In addition to being a training tower it is also the stairwell to the mezzanine and a hose drying tower.
This 11,500 SF facility houses a full company of firefighters and apparatuses with several spaces including sleeping areas, day room, fitness room, kitchen, and pantries. Durable materials such as masonry walls and sealed concrete floors were selected for their ease of cleanability.
