The November issue of Fire Chief magazine recognizes Buckeye Firehouse No. 703 in the 12th annual Station Style Fire Station Design Awards. This program recognizes outstanding architecture and design from fire departments nationwide.
According to Fire Chief magazine, Arizona is the top state for the Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) certified fire stations. The LEED certified-pending red brick fire station was designed by Perlman Architects of Arizona.
LSD prepared both landscape and irrigation construction documents for the fire station in the Verrado community. The areas in the landscape plan included the site perimeter, site and building entries, building foundation, and areas around the parking lot. The landscape contributes to the design and operation of the facility and is inviting to the Verrado community. The low water use plants have bold textures and bloom in vivid colors.
LSD has three LEED accredited landscape professionals on our Arizona environmental planning staff. LEED is an internationally recognized green-building certification system, which sets the preeminent standards for site selection, water and energy efficiency, materials used, and indoor environmental quality.
