Portfolio — Mount Mourne Fire Department
Located adjacent to the growing Lake Norman area in Iredell County, NC, the Mount Mourne Volunteer Fire Department was completed in 2004. The station serves one of the fastest growing communities in North Carolina. A pre-engineered metal building was chosen for the structural system because of its cost effectiveness and ease of construction. Fluhrer Reed worked closely with the architect to accurately detail the interaction between the concrete masonry walls and the pre-engineered metal building components. Concrete masonry units were used for durability and the coordination between the masonry block and the metal building system was imperative for construction sequencing. A steel mezzanine, located in the garage area, was designed for storage purposes and constructed after the pre-engineered metal building was erected.
