Located in Johnstown, Ohio, the Township of Monroe hired Five Bugles Design to design a new Fire/EMS Station. This six-bay station features state-of-the-art personal decontamination zone, a training room for fifty, administration quarters for the department, and living quarters for eight. The front of the facility boasts a striking two-level, tower-like structure, which allows for an interior mechanical room and mezzanine storage, while providing a break from the surface plane of the front façade. The locally sourced brick wainscoting is a true example of adding texture and color to a pre-engineered metal building in a budget-friendly way. Large windows above the glass overhead doors flood the apparatus bay with natural light.
