Fire Station No. 5 Replacement
This seismic improvement for Fire Station No. 5 (originally built in 1956) is part of the Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response (ESER 2010) bond work to renovate or replace selected fire stations. The ESER 2010 bond passed with 79.4% approval of San Francisco voters in June 2010.
On behalf of the San Francisco Fire Department, San Francisco Public Works hired Alten Construction as the general contractor for the project. The project included the demolition of the existing building and construction of a new seismically safe fire station with new building and life safety systems, ADA accessibility including an elevator, and other related improvements.
The project was designed and constructed to achieve LEED Gold certification for New Construction. Construction was completed in April 2019.
