Fire Station No. 4 was built in 1953 and located at 3600 Middlefield Road. The existing fire station building does not serve the current needs of the Fire Department and does not effectively use the current 0.6-acre portion of the property. City Council included the replacement of Fire Station No. 4 in the Infrastructure Plan approved in June 2014. This project will provide a new facility built to current essential services standards with a high likelihood of being fully operational during and after a major disaster such as a significant earthquake.
The proposed fire station shall be a building code compliant essential services facility for emergency response. The project will consist of the following components:
The new fire station will also be designed for LEED Silver certification and meet City adopted building code standards by having an all-electric design for new construction.
The project is divided into 3 phases: Schematic Design, Final Design and Construction Documents, and Construction. Community outreach will take place during Schematic Design.
City staff is seeking Council approval to award the design contract to BRW Architects in May 2022. Community outreach and schematic design will begin shortly after.
Solicitation for Design
No meetings are currently scheduled, but please check back for upcoming community workshops during Schematic Design.
