Due to increases in personnel and equipment, the Milton Fire Department had outgrown its existing facility. A decision was made to incorporate the new fire station into the existing municipal campus which included the town offices and rescue facility.
The Fire Department initiated a public information campaign and the voters of Milton responded by approving a bond for a new fire station. The Fire Department Building Committee visited many comparable fire stations throughout the State of Vermont and after a series of meetings with Wiemann Lamphere Architects and their consultants, the following program of spaces was determined:
Mechanical systems include multi-zoned radiant slab heating throughout with heat recovery and air conditioning in the Administrative Wing. Exterior materials feature brick walls, vinyl siding for gable ends, standing seam metal roof, and aluminum framed windows. Interior finishes include painted sheetrock walls, vinyl composition tile floors, 2’X2’ suspended tile ceiling, clear finish birch solid-core doors in painted steel frames with sidelights and solid birch window stools. The Meeting Room has clear finish pine wainscoting and carpet.
