Architectural Design for Public Safety

Marshfield Fire Station

Location: Marshfield, WI

Architect: Steve Gausman

Fire Services Specialist: Ed Mishefske

Project Manager: Robert Krzyzanowski

Project Size: 31,000+ SF

Steve Gausman and Ed Mishefske assisted the Marshfield Building Committee in reviewing fifteen various sites within the stipulated geographical area. Space Programming sessions were conducted with the Building Committee over multiple dates. As a result of this study, Marshfield Fire and Rescue decided to move ahead with a 31,000+ SF facility. The proposed design was constructed as an urban infill project on a downtown site that accommodates several sustainable features. The City of Marshfield is a leading proponent of sustainability and achieved a LEED Gold Certification for this facility – 100-year lifespan.
