Station 9 has been in consideration since 2001 and each year was shelved for one reason or another. Understanding the tremendous need for the new station, the City of South Bend and South Bend Fire Department worked tirelessly with the design team to gain community buy-in, secure a centrally located site, and serve the daily needs of the first responders living in the new facility. Topping the effort, Station 9 is tracking to become the second LEED Certified project taken on by the City of South Bend.
EPOCH is a regional leader in not only fire station design, but cancer mitigating research and implementation. We take great pride in knowing the best and smartest strategies in fire station design. We focus on both crew safety and functionality as well as aesthetics.
Station 9 was implemented through a thought process that delivers safety for its occupants with efficiency and design at a level of detail and consideration beyond the fire departments expectations. This station idealizes what a fire station should be from departmental and community perspectives.
