Housed in an early 1980's "Pueblo Revival" styled Municipal Complex that was also occupied by the Police Department, Municipal Court, Motor Vehicles Department and the City Administration, the Fire Department was in critical need of a major expansion to meet the growing needs of the region.


In order to maximize both the space available in the existing complex and funds available, portions of the existing fire station were renovated and re-purposed. Created was space for storage, a turn-out and laundry room and a command center/training classroom, while the apparatus bays were upgraded with state-of-the art systems and given a face-lift with new glazed bay doors. The two-story new addition provides administrative and more training areas, as well as a daylit public lobby, a large day room with outdoor patio, sleeping rooms, a fitness area and locker rooms.


Located in the Four Corners Region of NW New Mexico along the San Juan River, Bloomfield is surrounded by beautiful natural vistas and a wealth of historical riches including Anasazi sites and a tradition of oil and coal mining. The architectural expression of the fire station addition is an attempt to acknowledge those traditions. Weathered steel panels flank the east and west sides of the building and reference the surrounding landscape as well as the oil mining history of the area.
