The eastside station is being built to the same green standards, which means it will use 30 percent less energy and 50 percent less water than a conventionally built station, saving the city thousands of dollars in energy and water costs, Fullingim said.

Kirkpatrick Architecture Studio of Denton, Texas, a nationally known firm that specializes in LEED construction, designed both stations. The firm has opened a satellite office in downtown Norman, which serves as a base of operations for the project, said marketing director Terry Nobles.

“Our firm is deeply honored to be chosen as the design firm for this project and to once again work with Norman city officials,” he said.

Atlas General Contractors is under contract to build Fire Station No. 9. Public safety sales tax money is funding the $3.8 million construction project.
