Becker Morgan Group’s public safety studio was awarded three fire station projects for two longstanding clients: The City of Dover, Delaware, and the City of Wilmington, North Carolina. The public safety studio is lead by firm Principal, Ernie Olds, AIA, and has completed over 100 projects, totaling approximately 1 Million SF in size and valued at nearly $200 Million.
The firm’s relationship with the Dover Fire Department began in the early 2000’s with the renovation of their Robbins Hose Company and department headquarters. The initial project included the demolition and replacement of 4 apparatus bays and a second story addition. The remaining structure was completely updated, creating a 14,000sf facility for the City of Dover. As the city’s needs continue to evolve, Becker Morgan Group was awarded two renovation and addition projects in 2020 to create space for additional sleeping bunks and office space at the department’s Station No. 1 and Station No. 2 facilities.
In 2012 Becker Morgan Group was hired by the City of Wilmington, North Carolina, to design a 14,500sf state of the art, LEED Certified fire station. Since the successful completion of Station No. 3, the firm has completed the design of Station No. 5 and conducted a feasibility study for the department’s anticipated Station No. 6. After a formal submittal of qualifications and vetting process, Becker Morgan Group was selected to lead the design of the City of Wilmington’s new Station No. 6 in April of 2020.
Becker Morgan Group’s Principal, Ernie Olds, AIA, is proud of the firm’s longstanding relationships, “We are grateful for our community partners and view our strong relationships as a testament to our client-first approach, commitment to quality design, and understanding of public safety facilities.”
