The new fire rescue and beach safety complex consolidates existing operations into a new 41,689 s.f. facility. The two-story facility is built to withstand hurricane-force winds, so it can also serve as a disaster preparation and recovery coordination center. The complex includes 15 bunk rooms and a modern living space for the fire department. The beach safety side of the building houses locker rooms and storage areas for the lifeguards as well as administrative offices. The building also contains a shared training room and fitness center. The new complex is a LEED Silver building with solar PV panels on the roof, reflective roofing, renewable products for finishes, and energy efficient HVAC systems. The project also included the renovation of the historic Southwinds apartments which will now serve as the offices for the Beach CRA.
