Work has been completed on Fire Station No. 5, designed by Gora/McGahey Architects (GMA) for the Bonita Springs Fire Control and Rescue District. The station is located east of Bonita Bay on West Terry Street in Bonita Springs.

The fire station has a “neo-traditional” style, incorporating brick and a metal roof, and is designed to withstand 130 mph winds. A “front porch” has been designed to integrate this station with adjacent residential areas. This 8,688-square-foot fire and EMS station includes three apparatus bays and living quarters for up to 10 personnel. The dwelling area includes a kitchen, dining/day room, exercise room and lobby/office designed as a “safe room.” 

Dan McGahey of GMA was the principal in charge on the project; Noel Hernandez was the project manager; Cheryl Lewandowski provided the interior design; and Bob Schuerman served as contract manager.
