The new 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. The building was placed strategically on a 6-acre site that it shares with the Corinth Public Safety Facility to allow for a possible future expansion. 

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. With the City’s approval we reduced the number of bays from four to three 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.
