Providing services and equipment to save people’s lives and property is a Fire Department’s responsibility. Designing adequate, comfortable and efficient spaces to work, meet and house apparatus for a fire department is the job of our Architectural and Engineering design team. C.T. Male Associates has the strength of experience needed to complete the design and ability to provide all of the necessary services required to develop your project, from concept through construction.
Our experience in providing multi-discipline professional services includes a wide variety of projects ranging from new construction to rehabilitation of existing structures; facility evaluation surveys to master planning; pavement management to site utilization studies; and mechanical system improvements to generator system upgrades. Architects and engineers need to be consulted when drawing up the specifications for any public improvement project involving the construction or alteration to a building. C.T. Male Associates offers a full range of integrated design and building system engineering services, allowing us to provide all of the essential services for your project.
It is this type of experience, along with our familiarity with the requirements of the Building and Fire Codes, that provide with keen insight into the particular requirements for the design of Fire stations and other buildings that are designated as essential facilities required for emergency response. These structures need to be designed and constructed to safely support greater loading factors for wind, snow and seismic conditions. The reason for this is obvious, as it is these types of facilities that our communities depend upon to serve and protect them during their time of greatest need, when other less protected structures may potentially fail. C.T. Male Associates readily understands the impact of these requirements and how to best develop a building solution that is right for all your needs – now and into the future.
We believe that the design for any new essential facility should include high quality materials and energy efficient equipment that will meet the Life Cycles Cost Performance requirements of your organization. This simply means that when the initial investment and the costs of operating and maintaining the facility are considered over the life of the building, the Fire Department will receive the best investment for their construction dollar. C.T. Male Associates has the experience needed to provide the value engineering services necessary to properly evaluate the construction budget and incorporate the most cost-effective systems into the building design. This will ensure that the products purchased, or the facility being built, achieves maximum quality at the lowest possible cost.
We understand the challenges that Firefighters and emergency services personnel have in addressing the needs of a community as well as all the traditional fire protection services that are expected. And, we realize that projects of this sort are a large undertaking for any fire department. C.T. Male Associates has a proven track record to help you succeed in reaching your project goals, with the support of many of our senior personnel, who are also Commissioners, Past Chiefs and members of their local Departments that have had experience on their own building committees. We are confident that our Essential Facilities design team can provide your Department with all of the professional architectural and engineering services needed to successfully accomplish your project goals from design through construction.
