Princeton Fire Station 3
From a napkin to reality
Often when people say it was “designed on the back of a napkin”, it’s more of an expression than a reality.
But in the case of Princeton Fire Station No. 3 in Princeton, Texas, the project literally started with a napkin drawing given to us by the fire chief. Less than a year later, Princeton had its newest fire station in more than five years.
The $2.4 million, 7,800 SF facility features an exterior brick facade over a pre-engineered metal building. The brick facade was added to the scope after the PEMB was erected, which required adding waterproofing to the metal structure.
The station features a lot of natural light and an open feel around the kitchen and dayroom areas. The interior also features several custom pieces, such as dorm doors and kitchen tables, that were not in the original contract. This is where flexibility and creativity are wonderful traits to have when building.
There is sealed concrete throughout the common areas, and the app bays have polished concrete throughout.
Crossland self-performed the concrete work, which drove the schedule and allowed the team to finish on time and on budget. Eliminating the budgets for landscaping and irrigation for the site helped us stay aligned with the overall GMP budgets.
This fire station is one of several projects we’ve completed for the City of Princeton, which is a relatively new client. We look forward to expanding our partnership and working with the city for years to come.
