City of Olympia Fire Station 4

This station is performing as designed at 24% less energy consumption than a conventional station and serves the Olympia community well by costing substantially less to operate. Daylighting techniques utilized take advantage of the east-west orientation of the building, and north facing clerestory windows flood the interior with light. The design includes aggressive insulation of walls and roofs, heat exchangers to recapture warmth from exhausted air, and the installation of a high-efficiency HVAC system which contribute to the efficiency of the space serving administrative, apparatus bay, support, and residential functions.
