Case Study:  The UpGrade Fire Station

View the Brochure PDF

Contact Whitley Manufacturing


An existing, busy firehouse in the heart of the nation’s capital was in need of a much needed facelift and equipment upgrade. Service to the community could not be disrupted. A temporary location on an extremely tight urban site was available to accommodate the fire house and all of its equipment. Modular construction was selected as the ideal solution to minimize disruption to local business, traffic, and allow for a temporary relocation of this extremely busy station.

Modular Genius partnered with Whitley Manufacturing to provide a two story firehouse meeting all the needs of busy station. The buildings includes offices, meal prep, dining, shower and restrooms, sleeping facilities, and even an old fashioned fire pole. Whitley’s UpGrade modules were chosen to serve as the apparatus bay. The unique folding UpGrade building system could accommodate the largest fire fighting equipment, provide ceiling height in excess of twenty feet, and could be relocated to another the site once the existing fire station remodeling was complete.

Modular construction was able to serve the very unique 
set of requirements of the city and ensure the community was kept safe .
