BLM Fire Facility and Crew Quarters

Elko, Nevada

JFSA provided the structural design associated with this new Hotshot firefighters facility and a pair of crew quarters buildings. Under a schematic design, design development, and construction document sequence, the initial design went through the standard BLM Value Engineering Assessment process, in which BLM staff reviewed all identified design and site aspects to determine possible savings or possible improvements to the design that might cost more, but provide a better design.

Project Highlights:
BLM Fire Facility and Crew Quarters
Emergency Air Tanker Base
Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Station
No. 1, 3, & 4

Project Highlights:
  • Customized pre-engineered steel building
  • (3) engine bays with roll-up doors
  • Office/work space.
  • Crew quarters will house up to 12 firefighters

Emergency Air Tanker Base

Jefferson County, Colorado

JFSA provided construction documents for a 4,300-square-foot operations building and a 1,200-square-foot warehouse building at the Jefferson County Regional Airport. The new emergency facilities would play a key role in helping to fight forest fires around the state of Colorado.

Project Highlights:
  • Aggressive, quick schedule with fire season approaching
  • Crew quarters/office space
  • Chemical facility

Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Station
No. 1, 3, & 4

Denver International Airport, Colorado

JFSA provided structural design and construction services for these stations. Special details were required by the highly expansive soil in the area. A grade beam foundation was constructed on drilled caissons, and a cap of clay soil was placed around the entire building perimeter to minimize variances in the water content of the soil beneath the structure.

Project Highlights:
  • Aggressive schedule
  • Crew quarters
  • Office space
  • Engine facility
