Oakland Fire Station No. 8

Oakland, CA | Public Safety

The design of Fire Station No. 8 incorporated new state-of-the-art standards for the City of Oakland, including sustainable “green” design features. Building materials were selected to maximize recycled content, and a passive natural ventilation system uses convection and the prevailing wind to cool the building. The entire design through construction process was achieved in a record-breaking 16 months utilizing a fast-track CM/GC delivery system.

The kitchen is the heart of a fire station. Commercial-grade appliances are a necessity when preparing food for 10 hungry firefighters. Kitchens are also a place to unwind. At Station 8, the kitchen is adjacent to a dining area and second-floor patio.
