• DALLES FIRE STATION REMODEL AND SEISMIC UPGRADE

    Dalles, Oregon

    SDW provided design services for the upgrade of the existing two-story Dallas fire station. Constructed in 1973, the original building required seismic upgrades to meet Essential Facility building codes as well as ADA compliance. SDW, in coordination with the structural engineer, provided options for cost reduction and improvement of the building’s envelope performance. Savings in the construction budget allowed funding to be directed toward non-seismic improvements, including a new ADA elevator, new finishes in the second floor conference room, and the replacement of deteriorated exterior paneling and window system.
