Moraga-Orinda Fire Station No. 43
Orinda | California
A new 5,000 square foot fire station featuring a two-story administration and dormitory and an adjacent tall one-story two-bay apparatus bay. Conventional wood framing will be used with manufactured roof truss framing and concrete spread footings and slab on grade. Special design consideration was given to reduce the structural steel in the project and utilize cost effective structural wood shear walls and framing at the administration and dormitory as earthquake and wind force resisting system bracing the apparatus bay. Estimated construction cost is $2.5 million.
