In 2004, the City of Winters, a Rural Community in Northern California,
had the vision and foresight to seek Redevelopment Bonds for a new
Police and Fire Facility. The proposed project would not only provide
much needed working facilities for the Police and Fire Departments, but
also serve as a catalyst for new businesses to come to City of Winters.
A Needs Assessment projected a 45,000 square foot facility for a 25-year
build-out for the facility, which would house both Departments. The new
facility replaces the existing Winters Fire Station 26, and the existing
Police Department, located adjacent to City Hall, in the original Fire
Station 26 location. Priorities for the new Facility included
Functionality, Energy Efficiency, Low Maintenance, and Aesthetics. The
Facility will serve as the City's Emergency Operations Center and
Training Center, and historically is used for Community Events.
Set amongst residences and fronting a State Highway, with close
proximity to town, the new City of Winters Police-Fire Facility shares
the site with a City Well Building, a City Lift Station, and a new
140-foot high Communications Tower.
The new Police-Fire Facility is two-stories, with a gross building area
of +/-34,563 square feet, and consists of two one-story Pre-Engineered
Metal Building Systems sandwiching a two-story Wood-Frame Structure. The
Facility includes complete Fire facilities with a four-bay Apparatus
Room, eleven Dorms, Dayroom and Kitchen, Administrative Offices, and a
Firepole; Police facilities with Records, Property & Evidence, Booking,
Holding Cells, Sallyport, Locker Rooms, and Administrative Offices; and
Commons areas including Public Lobby, Training Room/EOC, and Exercise
Room. The Facility is designed to accommodate community events in the
Apparatus Room, which has a hydronically heated floor, and a
low-velocity overhead fan for air distribution, and includes a separate
Community Kitchen for annual events.
The Site includes Training Grounds, an underground Drafting Pit, and
Secured Covered Parking for Patrol Cars. A third separate Pre-Engineered
Metal Building serves as an Out Building, +/-5,758 square feet, and
houses the City's collection of antique Fire Apparatus, provides a bay
for vehicle maintenance of the Fire Engines, and also provides large
item storage for the Police Department.
The two-story element breaks up the horizontal massing of the
surrounding one-story elements, by providing an animated and varied
vertical massing scheme, with dominant roofline profiles. The wall
planes of the one-story elements are broken up by attached Roof Awnings,
over walkways and carports, and the Apparatus Doors for the Fire
Exterior materials have been selected for appearance and aesthetics,
durability, and long-term maintenance.
The one-story Metal Building elements have a concrete masonry wainscot
with pre-finished vertical, metal siding above; the metal siding is Red,
at the Fire Department, and Blue, at the Police Department. The
two-story element has a clay masonry wainscot, with accent striping to
provide scale to the building, and with pre-finished vertical, metal
siding above. The historic Winters Bell and Flagpoles are incorporated
into the design.
