Architectural Design: Fire Stations - 3 PDH

Email
This course will introduce you to the principles of architectural planning and design. Because architectural design is largely a subjective process, the “casebook” approach is used to illustrate it. In this instance, the architectural design of fire stations is the “case” to be discussed. You will learn about space allocation criteria, core functional areas, site evaluation and location, general design guidelines, site design, and building design criteria. You will learn criteria for selection of furniture, fixtures and equipment for all of the functional areas in fire stations. You will learn how to develop and apply functional relationship diagrams for all areas of a fire station. This course will give you the fundamentals you need to address fire station construction planning and layout for design projects in your day-to-day practice and activities.
