Denver Fire Station Renovations

Complete!

The $6.2 Million Bond-funded renovations were completed in December 2009 at five fire stations (6, 11, 23, 24 and 25) serving the Baker, Harvey Park, Athmar Park and University Park neighborhoods. The renovation work had been identified through a Fire Facilities Master Plan done in 2003.  To minimize disruption, only a few of the stations were worked on at a time, and fire crews were temporarily relocated during the work. All crews are now back in their respective stations.
 
Where possible and practicable, the work incorporated environmentally sustainable and efficient features, using GreenPrint Denver guidelines. The station renovations included replacements or upgrades touching items from the list below, which were done at most, but not necessarily all locations:
  • Roofs –  at some locations
  • Energy efficient R30 insulation – at some stations
  • Exterior walls 
  • Energy efficient  windows
  • Doors 
  • Concrete – using 20% fly ash, a recycled material, as well as recycling the old concrete.
  • HVAC –New more radiant heaters at all 5 stations (more efficient and effective in dispersing heat than old ceiling vent unit heaters). New swamp coolers were installed to replace the less efficient window-mounted air conditioning units
  • Plumbing – low flow plumbing  fixtures (toilets, sinks, showers) to save water
  • Electrical – including energy efficient lighting, and new electrical panels where needed
  • Interior floors
  • Ceiling /Interior Walls
  • Kitchen – including appliances, flooring, countertops and cabinets
  • Dispatch – including traffic signalization override switch
  • Hose Tower refurbishment, where needed
  • Storage Lockers
Additionally, a few unique issues were addressed at certain stations, such as the need for a sewer line replacement at Fire Station 24, which had frequent sewer problems.
