Approximately 60 interior design students recently participated in a Charrette, an intense design period, to help plan and design a new fire station for the Douglass Volunteer Fire Department.
During this three-day period, eight teams of interior design students of various classifications engaged in every phase of the design process. Students visited the site in Douglass to obtain measurements and sketch the location. Douglass fire department personnel were on hand to answer questions.
Each year as a volunteer service to the community, SFA's interior design department participates in a similar project.
