Madison Fire Station #1

Madison, WI

The City of Madison Fire Station #1 at 316 West Dayton Street has served the Isthmus and downtown area, since its original construction in 1967. Fire Station #1 is the City’s largest and busiest firehouse and in March 2015 the Fire Station underwent an extensive renovation. Much of the renovation included energy efficient enhancements, improvements to community access and gender neutral living spaces, electrical upgrades, and a ready-to-use command post.

The project was split into two major phases. Phase one included a tenant buildout of approximately 30,000 square feet within the newly constructed Ovation 309 building, which houses the Fire Station’s administrative offices. Phase two included 25,000 square feet in renovation. Access between the Fire Station and the adjacent administrative offices is provided at the basement, first floor and mezzanine levels. The combined project is seeking LEED Gold Certification.
