The new station is twice as big and includes living quarters, office areas, apparatus bays, and support spaces.
Several of its design features will contribute to a reduction in annual energy consumption by 22 percent below ASHRAE baseline. Lifghting power density was reduced by 36 percent from state code by using high efficiency fluorescent lamps to establish a lower base lighting level with supplemental task lighting where needed. A 7,100 gallon rainwater harvesting tank was incorporated as art and supplies 100 percent of the station’s non-potable water for flushing fixtures, irrigation, and hardscape wash-down.
