MnANG/Duluth International Airport Joint Airfield Fire Station
Project Type: New Fire Station; Duluth, MN
Client: Duluth Airport Authority and the Minnesota Air National Guard (MnANG)
LHB, in conjunction with RS&H, provided services for a new 24,040 square foot airfield fire station. LHB was responsible for the architectural, structural and electrical design on this $6.9 million facility, which supports the Minnesota Air National Guard’s aircraft fire fighting and emergency services mission and serves the Duluth International Airport. The facility was built in two phases starting in 2004. The construction of a new airfield fire station was necessary to provide an adequately sized and modern facility within prescribed distances and response times to airfield incidents. The building contains an Alarm Center, Apparatus Rooms, Training Facilities, Living Quarters, Dining Room, Administrative Area, Maintenance, and Support Areas. State-of-the-art communication and security systems were installed. The facility complies with all current Department of Defense design guidelines and force protection standards.
