Fire Station 90 is The City of Houston's first LEED Gold fire station. A pre-determined site that is narrower than desired meant The City's preferred internal design would not fit and unconventional planning would be required.  Early planning in Revit (a form of Building Information Modeling) allowed our team to model multiple real-time solutions for the Fire Station staff, ultimately uncovering functional solutions and spatial relationships that proved the new planning would be successful.  Throughout SD and DD, we exploited Revit's strengths to invite Client participation in the design process in a meaningful, hands-on manner.
