Lee's Summit Fire Station No. 2 is a prime example of how selected applications of green design can make a new fire station highly sustainable while fulfilling its essential functions. The 8,905-square-foot satellite station features two drive-through apparatus bays, bunkrooms for eight, a kitchen adjoined by a day room, fitness room and training room. With the need for gender-neutral living quarters, each pair of bunkrooms share a shower and restroom that provide full privacy. Materials and color of the Cool Roof were carefully chosen to reduce the amount of heat absorbed by the building. Inside the walls and roof spray insulation helps keep heat and cold out and maintain comfortable temperatures inside. Since the rear of the station site is only about 75 feet from a busy state highway, special insulation also quiets the highway noise inside the station. The station also incorporates daylighting, recycled material in many of the building materials and high-efficiency lighting.
