Studio Gang’s 21,K SqFt Brooklyn FDNY training facility

The precast concrete firehouse and training center for FDNY’s Brooklyn Rescue Company 2 sits at 1815 Sterling Place, on the border of Crown Heights and Brownsville. The 21,K SqFt structure, designed by our friends at Studio Gang, will allow firefighters to simulate rescue scenarios for training purposes, – such as those in which they have to deal with the obstacles of balconies, stairs, and ladders. The facility itself is energy efficient, with a green roof, and geothermal system 500 feet belowground. Though the building is largely in place, having topped out, one year into construction, it is awaiting the red glazed tiling that will frame its windows and other openings, and is about a year away from the completion. This $32M project is being constructed through NYC’s Department of Design and Construction.
