Monticello fire department | Monticello, MN
The City of Monticello hired Brunton Architects & Engineers to design their new 20,000 s.f. Fire Hall. The completed design includes a precast concrete structure that houses an Emergency Operations Center (EOC), administrative offices, large training room, hose/training tower, 12 stall apparatus bay, gear grid room, fitness room, radio room, SCBA room, sweat sauna, dirty restroom, emergency generator, display area for historic fire trucks, storage rooms, and future space for adding overnight sleeping rooms and day room for full time fire fighters. The fire hall project came in $900,000 under projected budget and on time due to favorable timing of the bidding of the project in the public market. Through the efficient and thorough design, the Monticello Fire Station received national recognition and a bronze honor in the 2020 Firehouse Station Design Awards.
