PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Alvine Engineering is honored to be partnering with Carlson West Povondra Architects to provide mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and technology services for the new Omaha fire station. The City of Omaha Fire Station 31 will be relocated to a new location at 3404 Q Street in South Omaha. According to the City of Omaha, the Omaha Fire Department operates 24 fire stations. The last new construction was completed back in 2001.

The station design is focused on firefighter safety, including dedicated decontamination and turnout gear storage rooms that promote air quality by exhausting and exchanging room air, an extractor washing machine and dryer so that firefighters can properly follow decontamination protocols and a turnout gear storage room, to hold two sets of turnout gear for each firefighter.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Designed generator back-up power for entire building.
  • 100% LED lighting throughout the facility and grounds.
  • The team salvaged historic wall sconce lighting fixtures from existing Omaha Fire Department’s Station #31 and relocated them to new facility’s apparatus bays to honor the history of Station #31.
  • The apparatus bays were provided with a gas detection system, a central air fan forced heating system, and a vehicle exhaust system.
