Fire Station 22 Opens on Roanoke

The recently completed Roanoke Fire Station 22 is the last replacement station built with funds from the 2003 City of Seattle Fire Levy.

The previous 50-year-old building at 901 E. Roanoke St. was too small and had outdated systems.

The new $13 million, 10,000-square-foot station is a two-story, steel-framed structure with updated systems, a drive-thru apparatus bay, decontamination clean room and storage for major disaster supplies.

It houses the E22 Engine Company as well as the department’s Incident Command Unit.

Project architect Weinstein A+U had to make the building work on a complex site at the north end of Capitol Hill, where Interstate 5 meets state Route 520.

The station has a sculpted facade along Roanoke, and the hose tower acts as a landmark. The glazed lobby and apparatus bay doors on the northeast corner of the station will face the future state Route 520 lid.

The project was designed for LEED platinum certification, with solar panels on the roof and cisterns to reuse captured rainwater.

Par-Tech Construction was the general contractor. Other project team members include: Swenson Say Faget, structural engineer; Greenbusch Group, mechanical engineer; LPD Engineering, civil engineer; Stantec, electrical engineer; Tetra Tech + INCA, traffic, signalization and alerting; O’Brien Co., LEED project management; and Murase Associates, landscape architect.
