FDNY Rescue Company 1

The new headquarters for Rescue Co. 1 is home to the first fire rescue company in the United States. The project was executed within a highly compressed schedule following the destruction of the original headquarters when an adjacent building collapsed. The new building includes salvaged and reinstalled stone and ironwork from the original Napoleon LeBrun facade. The design included several features developed in conjunction with Rescue Company 1 including open showers and drains on the apparatus floor and overhead suspension of various pieces of large rescue equipment including a Zodiac boat. This equipment can be lowered and attached to the truck roof within the time it takes for the overhead door to open.
