Hudson Fire Department

Location:Hudson, WI
Contractor:Market & Johnson
Architect:Brunton Architects & Engineers, Ltd
Engineer:Albertson Engineering

Construction on the new Hudson fire station is officially underway after the city held a groundbreaking in June 2019.

The total precast building is nearly 30,000 square feet and two stories. The first floor has the apparatus bay, gear grid room, training room and administrative space with a kitchen, offices and meeting room. The hall also has a training tower and various spaces for storage. A hose room in the apparatus bay will also serve as a decontamination area for firefighters and the gear grid room is also pressurized so contaminants don’t spread throughout the building.

The second floor will host the living quarters with sleeping rooms, restrooms with showers and the fire pole. Multiple entrances will give access to the building. Two-way traffic outside the building will allow responding firefighters to come into the lot and make their way into the building from the back,

The exterior of the building uses precast, which allows for a nice exterior product at a lower price. Well Concreted produced and is currently erecting more than 50,000 sq. ft. of precast for this building.  The exterior architectural wall showcase a mix of colors with a sandblast and waterwash finish.  Double tees, hollowcore, beams, columns and structural wall panels support the interior of the fire station.
