St. Charles Breaks Ground On Fire Station No. 3
There was a lot of celebrating going on as the City of St. Charles, MO “broke ground” on the new Fire Station No. 3. JEMA is the architect and designer of this new 8,600 sq. ft. mission critical facility, which will replace the previous station. The design follows a prototype plan created for the city that maximizes state-of-the-art fire station technologies and leverages planning efficiencies. With two drive through apparatus bays, Fire Station No. 3 can house varying ambulance and firetruck types. JEMA’s design for the exterior intentionally suits the contextual surroundings of the neighborhood – including the color of the brick and the pitch of the roof.
This modern station sets the tone for the City of St. Charles’s investment in safety and community responsiveness, funded Proposition R, which was approved by voters in April 2021. Construction is anticipated to be completed Fall 2023.
