FleischmanGarcia was retained to design Fire Rescue Station No. 13 by the City of St. Petersburg.
The structure was a four-bay ﬁre station designed for 10 ﬁreﬁghters in approximately 8,750 sq. ft. The ﬁreﬁghters' dormitory was designed for privacy rather than using the older, military-style dormitory design. This area is divided into 8-foot by 10-foot cubicles that include a bed, three lockers, a small, built-in desk and curtain at the entrance. The building exterior uses brick, pre-finished metal fascia panels and dimensional roof shingles to minimize maintenance costs.
