The City of Ladue retained Chiodini Architects to prepare a Municipal Fire Facilities Master Plan to assure the community of functional, efficient life safety/emergency services in the future.
The study evaluated the existing Fire Stations; essential services evaluation, structural system, MEP system efficiency, and facility functionality/efficiency to determine whether renovation and expansion or new facilities would best serve Ladue. Alternate station locations, which would maintain or improve upon the existing life safety/emergency services and response times throughout the City, were also evaluated; along with the possibility of consolidating the two stations.
Based on functionality, efficiency, and cost the City selected the option of replacing the two existing stations with new stations. Station #2, was completed in 2014; refinement of Station #1 design began Spring of 2015 with a scheduled completion for summer 2017.
