Archello: Bothell Fire Stations 42 and 45

7-30-2023 | News

Located in Bothell, WA, replacement Fire Stations 42 and 45 were completed through a progressive design-build collaboration between The Miller Hull Partnership, BNBuilders, OAC Services, Inc., and the City of Bothell. In addition to the firefighting equipment and apparatus bays, each station includes living quarters, equipment pressurization and decontamination spaces, and maintenance facilities. Station 45 also houses a satellite police office so Bothell Police Department can better serve its north-end residents.

To maintain continuous operations and level of service, the program also included the design and construction of two temporary facilities. It was critical to the fire department to minimize impacts on ongoing operations and maintain emergency response times. Numerous options and sites were analyzed for potential temporary sites, with Station 45 presenting the most challenge due to limited space on the existing site. Ultimately, a temporary structure was built next to Station 42 and the Bothell Fire Department partnered with a neighboring jurisdiction to share a fire station in the vicinity, providing continued interim operations for Station 45.
