Buchart Horn Architects provided architectural and engineering design for a two-story fire station with standard administration areas, public facilities, living areas for firemen, and three bays for fire trucks.
The City of Picayune had initially hired a local drafting company to prepare the design and construction documents for their new Fire Station. Upon completion of this drafting, the project advertised for bidding purposes. At that time, it was discovered that professional Architects and Engineers had not prepared the documents. There was great concern among the responding General Contractors regarding the accuracy of the documents and the process of having a drafting company prepare construction documents for the new fire station.
The City of Picayune contacted our client, Dungan Engineering, to assist with the project. Dungan is a local engineering firm whose primary practice focuses on civil engineering. They asked Buchart Horn to assist them with the preparation of the remaining architectural and engineering design.
The building will primarily be constructed of pre-engineered metal with a pre-engineered structure and metal panels. A brick veneer will be utilized at strategic points on the exterior of the building.
