Since 2000 Wolf Architecture has performed design services on a number of public safety buildings within the MSB including PSB 1-2, 2-1, 3-9, 6-1, 6-2, 6-3, 6-6, 7-2, 7-3, 8-2, 9-0, 11-2, 12-2, and 13-1. In 2010, Wolf Architecture was selected to design a new prototypical community fire station for the MSB incorporating state-of-the-art technology, equipment and Green Building strategies. The new facilities provide 30% energy savings when compared to a standard Building of similar size. PSB 63+66 were the first and were constructed on time and within the $2.4 million dollar budget. These projects are similar to the proposed Kenai Peninsula Borough Maintenance Building in that these facilities house large vehicles for storage and maintenance, are multi-functional in nature, and typically involve the coordination of owner supplied or contractor supplied furnishings and equipment.
