Located in Johnstown, Ohio, the Township of Monroe hired Five Bugles to design a new Fire/EMS Station, replacing their existing station 501. This six-bay station features state-of-the-art personal decontamination zone, a training room for fifty, administration quarters for the department and the Township, and living quarters for eight. The front of the facility boasts a striking two-level, tower-like structure, which allows for an interior mechanical room, and mezzanine storage, while providing a break from the surface plane of the front façade. The locally sourced brick waistcoat is a wonderful example of how to enhance a pre-engineered metal building with texture and add color while maintaining a conscientious budget. Large windows above the glass overhead doors will flood the apparatus bay with natural light. With design beginning in the summer of 2019, the project went out for bid in the spring of 2020, and is scheduled for substantial completion in February 2021.
