Janesville Central Fire Station
The City of Janesville retained Wendel’s Five Bugles Design team to replace its aging Central Fire Station located on Milton Avenue; a gateway to Janesville’s Downtown. The new station is located on adjacent parcels allowing for existing 24/7 fire and EMS protection. Architecturally the new station is inspired by many of the features of the existing station it replaced. The architectural design was the result of numerous public presentations and open house forums during both programming and schematic design phases of the project. The station recently received a Notable Mention Award from Firehouse magazine. As important, it was the second lowest cost per square foot of all contestants. Completed on time and under budget.
