It was an old problem, one the City of Brookhaven had always just had to deal with. One-third of the city’s firefighters were housed in an old metal building in the city’s northeast quadrant, but there was no place — and no money — to move them. When the building began to deteriorate rapidly, the city asked Dungan Engineering to help get the firemen into more suitable quarters. Dungan helped city leaders identify a nearby building (an old tractor dealership) that had all the right qualities and achieve grant funding for the project, with the help of state Sen. Sally Doty and Rep. Becky Currie. Waycaster and Associates Architects, along with mechanical and electrical engineers from I.C. Thomasson, designed a plan to gut and renovate the building with bedrooms, restrooms, offices, a kitchen and training spaces. Paul Jackson & Son handled construction, including the addition of a 2,000 square-foot parking bay and a 250-foot concrete rear access road with parking.
