Programming and Conceptual Design for Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Station Replacement

Location: Valdosta Regional Airport, Georgia

Michael Baker provided programming services and developed conceptual designs for a new 8,200-square-foot, one-story airport rescue and fire-fighting (ARFF) station to replace the existing facility.

Constructed in 1977, the 3,300-square-foot, one-story ARFF facility is structurally inadequate to meet airport needs and does not comply with current FAA design requirements.

Michael Baker's tasks included researching and reviewing building and site documents; conducting a site visit; inventorying current ARFF building spaces and uses; identifying immediate and long-term facility spatial and site development programming needs in collaboration with the client;   identifying and evaluating building and site conceptual alternatives, including a preferred alternative, and preparing cost estimates; developing conceptual designs; and preparing draft and final reports summarizing findings and recommendations.
