Maricopa Fire Department’s Donald N. Pearce Fire Station 575 received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Station 575 is the first municipal building in the city to be LEED certified.
The station on Edison Road was built in 2014, replacing the original Garvey Station.
The new building is 7,789 square feet with two bays, fitness center and dormitory rooms. The building design was constructed with sustainable strategies of the LEED rating system that was developed by the USGBC.
LEED is a nationally-accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.
