Sys-Tek provided conceptual MEP design of Fire Station 7, working closely with the design-build team of Titan Construction and Gossen Livingston for the City of Olathe, Kansas. The new one-story 13,000 square foot station is located near the intersection of 161st Street and Mur-Len.
The Fire Department’s primary goal was to minimize response time and maximize access to the six apparatus bays. The bays contain overhead doors and living quarters for up to seven firefighters per shift. The station was designed as a single story, slab-on-grade structure to help reduce the potential of firefighter injuries associated with poles in multistory stations.
Sys-Tek followed the performance specifications outlined by the City of Olathe and focused on providing MEP systems that are functional, easily accessible, and maintainable. Sys-Tek designed all MEP systems including HVAC, plumbing, fire protection and alarm, electrical power and lighting, data communication, and security construction documents for this facility. This facility has a diesel fuel powered emergency generator to allow for 24/7 operation of critical systems.
