Project Description

The Toano Fire Station #1 was designed as a facility supporting both volunteer and career staff, built on a tight site immediately behind the original existing station.

The original station remained in operation while the new station was built. The new, 2-story building provides a high performance facility for volunteer and career staff and rescue squad personnel operations and training, and simultaneously provides greatly improved facilities for community use with its community/training room and associated commercial kitchen facility.

The station also includes new parking and a new site entry allowing vehicle return to the rear of the station, a new fueling facility for support of county vehicles at the upper end of James City county, and a water supply station, which provides water to local contractors.

Guernsey-Tingle and SCNA worked closely with the County to design a facility that reflects the history of the site as a center of community life (a high school occupied the site in the early 1900s), and to honor the sacrifice of the volunteer department that constructed the existing facility.
