Ridge Fire District

Project Location: Ridge, New York
Client: Ridge Fire District

N+P provided architecture, interior design, civil engineering & land surveying services to develop a new ground up state-of-the-art headquarter building for one of Long Island’s largest fire districts.  Located on a 2-acre parcel of land, the existing firehouse was demolished to make way for a new 26,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility that includes six truck bays, two ambulance bays and a mechanic’s bay; supported by ample interior offices and amenities including a community meeting hall, recreation room, sleeping quarters and training rooms for the staff.  The traditional character of the neighborhood informed the exterior architecture with its use of locally sourced brick veneer and use of reverse gable roof lines. The interior design draws on fire house design elements, while striking a balance between a modern yet traditional aesthetic.  Use of LED lighting, solar panels and energy efficient heating and cooling systems acknowledges the District’s commitment to sustainable best practices. N+P designed the site to meet the needs of an active fire house, provide proper maneuvering of the trucks and rigs while siting the building to provide as little site disturbance as possible.  Our roadway designers ensured that Town rules and regulations were adhered to since the building was located along a Town-owned road. New on-site sanitary and stormwater management systems were designed to accommodate the needs of the facility, along with dark-sky compliant site lighting, new electrical, water and fire sprinkler services. Our survey team provided construction layout services to ensure the design was properly implemented.
