Situated in MCB Camp Pendleton, the project required a detailed design and construction of a satellite Fire Emergency Response Station. Covering an area no greater than 15,285 square feet, the final structure was a single-story Type II-B edifice. Constructed with concrete masonry unit (CMU) exterior bearing walls and fortified by a steel frame standing seam metal roof, the station seamlessly incorporated a diverse range of facilities. This included administrative spaces, living quarters, and specialized storage zones, as well as vehicle apparatus bays. Its strategic location ensured Camp Pendleton’s Fire Protection needs were effectively addressed, substantially improving the response times to key zones.

Our electrical team played an instrumental role in powering this advanced Fire Emergency Response Station. In addition to ensuring reliable power and lighting inside the facility, our contributions were widespread and critical. We took charge of installing a 15kv 600A switch and a 225KVA pad mount transformer, overseeing all medium voltage terminations with precision. Furthermore, our responsibilities extended to the deployment of a powerful 200kW generator, ensuring constant power backup, complemented by an ATS and the meticulous arrangement of switchgear and panelboards. This ensured an uninterrupted and robust electrical infrastructure crucial to the operations of the station.
