Mackenzie was selected to develop a needs assessment and conceptual design, forecast project costs, and create materials to aid in the bond campaign efforts for the development of a new 20,000 SF station for the City of Buckley. The project team, including the design team and key staff from the Buckley Fire Department, worked together to develop a conceptual design that fit in well with the surrounding community and met the needs of the expanding volunteer department. A series of site and floor plan studies was developed and a visioning session was held with the Department and community members to gain exterior design inspiration and input from local residents.
Mackenzie assisted with bond campaigning efforts. Voters approved the bond levy in May 2010, and Mackenzie continued to work with the department to develop construction documents and guide the project through permit procurement, bidding, and construction.
