In 2005, OPN Architects was approached by the City of Moline to provide services on a phased public safety project. Before this project, the Moline Fire and Police department jointly occupied the City of Moline’s 40,000 sf Emergency Center. With the construction of a new police station, options were needed to allow the fire department to expand and vacate its space.

OPN worked directly with the fire department and public works personnel to renovate and upgrade the existing Central Fire Station. Improvements included functional space reorganization, new exterior windows, new apparatus bay doors, and HVAC and electrical systems upgrades. The outdoor patio structure provided a unique space for employee recreation and outdoor meetings. A feasibility study and phased planning continues to provide for on-going improvements and expansion for the fire department.

The Fire Department’s portion of the building is a six bay apparatus area with offices, classrooms and living quarters located above. Administrative offices, including offices for the Public Safety Director, three Battalion Chiefs, the Fire Inspector, Training Officer and Administrative Secretary are located in this facility.
