Cornerstone provided key details associated with the architectural features within the apparatus bay at the 9,800 sf Fire/Police Station No. 5 to accent the curved steel roof through the use of arched pipe trusses with tie rods. Station 5 is a combined Police and Fire public safety hub with a wood frame administrative and residential wing and a masonry and structural steel apparatus bay.
