Woodlawn Fire Station, designed by BKV Group, has been awarded the Merit Award for institutional design excellence in the 2021 James M. Scott Exceptional Design Program.  The design program was established in 1984 to recognize achievement in the total design of a building.  Per Fairfax County’s website the awards program is sponsored by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and administered by the County’s Department of Planning and Development in cooperation with the County Architectural Review Board and the Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.  To learn more about the award: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/planning-development/exceptional-design-awards/2021-recipients

Woodlawn Fire Station is a 15,000 square foot, 2-story, 4 apparatus bay facility constructed on the existing site of the old fire station. The existing fire station remained fully operational until final completion of the new facility, after which the old facility was abated and demolished.  This was a phased occupied project which was built on a very tight construction site.  The new building features bunk rooms, an exercise room, commercial kitchen, and administrative offices.
