Our Annual Green Building Tour will feature the new Maplewood Fire Station which is seeking LEED certification under the v4 rating system. The former Maplewood Fire Station was embedded within the existing City Hall and Police Station municipal complex located along Manchester Road. The decades-old station no longer met the needs of a modern fire-fighting force, so Maplewood recognized that a new energy efficient building was needed to properly serve the community. The new 20,500 sq. ft. facility is located on a prominent corner site at the intersection of Manchester Road and Bredell Avenue. Integrating the building into the steep grade while providing a drive-through apparatus bay and maintaining strict sustainability standards presented a significant design challenge. The mission critical headquarters is structurally hardened to better withstand natural disasters like tornadoes and seismic events, all while seeking LEED certification.
