Central Jackson County Fire Protection District

This attractive 18,700-square-foot facility, comprising fire district offices, main board room, living quarters, apparatus room and hose tower, was completed in just seven months by Meyer Brothers Building Company, Blue Springs, a Con/Steel licensee, the general and tilt-up contractor.

White portland cement was used to contrast with the thin red bricks inlaid into the tilt-up panels. Brick SnapTM by The Scott System, Denver, is used to integrally cast the 1/2-inch-thick bricks into the panels. Panel joint widths were reduced to 3/8 inch, instead of the typical 3/4 inch, to resemble brick mortar joints. The hose drying tower adds architectural appeal as well as serving a functional purpose. Gossen/Livingston Architecture, Kansas City, provided the architectural design and LJB Engineers & Architects, Dayton, Ohio performed the engineering.
