EMS Station 3 will be the first EMS station to implement the FDNY's newly developed comprehensive EMS program, improving response capability by accommodating a larger number of vehicles, staff and support spaces. The two-story, 13,500-square-foot structure will house an apparatus floor with eight ambulances, a refueling bay, locker rooms and a training room as well as administrative support, a kitchen and storage space.
The station's exterior is designed with careful consideration of the context, including a green roof as a fifth façade "fronting" the high-rise residential tower across the street. Rainwater harvesting is incorporated in the roof drainage design, and the collected water is stored in a cistern to be made available to the community gardeners in an effort to mitigate the relocation of the existing community garden to a smaller adjacent lot.
Sustainable goals include reducing storm water runoff through strategically located porous paving and captured storm water reuse, utilizing planning and material strategies for natural ventilation and daylighting, maximizing use of recycled materials and reducing energy use through efficient building systems and equipment.
