Newly Renovated FDNY EMS Station 39
Cameron Engineering provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural engineering design to Emergency Medical Service Station #39, and also managed the architectural scope to transition the outdated facility into a sun-filled and healthful workplace. The design team fashioned the rooftop with a daylight harnessing system to fill the interior with natural light, a series of solar panels for supplemental water heating, and a ‘green roof’ that helps to insulate the building. The result is a positive and salubrious environment that promotes the physical and mental well-being necessary for personnel to conduct essential services for the neighborhood. The structural design overcame poor soil conditions by injecting grout into the void space below the existing slab to stabilize and level the subsurface for new construction. Other features such as radiant heating in the ambulance truck bay, LED lighting and biometric security provide a workspace that is both energy efficient and safe for workers and residents alike.
