Seattle Fire Station #31

Seattle, WA

Originally constructed in 1973, this fire station received a seismic renovation and addition to house the North End Hazardous Materials Reserve Unit and additional medic quarters. Located near Northgate, the basement was remodeled to accommodate additional equipment storage and maintenance activities. Structural improvements included upgrading the building’s lateral force resisting system to meet current seismic standards. The station’s hose tower was also included in the retrofit.
