San Diego Awards Contracts for New Fire Station

Critical Infrastructure, Architecture & Interiors, Architecture, Contract Awards, Public Sector, United States

The City of San Diego has awarded the architectural contract for the new Torrey Pines Fire Station to The Miller Hull Partnership, and announced Level 10 Construction as general contractor for the civic facility.

 

The fire station is located on the border between the UC San Diego campus and the surrounding residential and life sciences communities it will serve, with the project designed to meet the programmatic requirements of the City of San Diego, create a healthy and safe environment for occupants and visitors, and fit seamlessly into the neighborhood.

 

Miller Hull and Level 10 teams are well versed in delivering projects using various forms of integrated project delivery where designers, consultants, and subcontractors work closely from design through construction. The two firms will provide the City of San Diego with a highly experienced team familiar with the complex issues and major trends in fire station design and construction. Their related public safety, essential services, and other highly functional facilities with safety or security elements enhance their ability to bring important considerations to the forefront.

 

The new fire station will provide a significantly improved emergency response to the surrounding community and an energy-efficient facility consistent with the City of San Diego Climate Action Plan targets. The new structure will incorporate on-site renewable energy and target low-carbon-emissions construction and operations - including emissions associated with building construction and
carbon emissions from building operations. 

 

In addition to meeting the city’s project requirements, the site layout, building design, and materials selections were organized around the following three goals: Simple Building Form, Firefighter Health & Response Time, and Authentic Community Connection & Fit.
