Palm Beach State College (PBSC) is a public college based in Lake Worth, Florida, with approximately 50,000 students enrolled in over 100 programs of study. While not it’s original campus, PBSC occupies 114 acres at the Lake Worth campus, granted by Palm Beach County in 1953. Caulfield & Wheeler is proud to have provided professional survey services for the Lake Worth campus’ new Fire Training Facilities. Boundary, Topographic, and Tree surveys from Caulfield & Wheeler were utilized by designer Stephen Boruff, AIA, Architects + Planners, Inc, and contractor Balfour Beatty Construction.
The Palm Beach State College Fire Training Facilities feature a fully operational elevator, a programmable high-rise alarm system, a 5th-floor cutout, and davits on the roof. All of these specialized features allow the staff to adequately train and challenge students, providing the highest quality experience and education possible.
In addition to the Fire Tower, Palm Beach State College utilizes six fire engines, a 100′ ladder truck, a special operations vehicle, an air truck, and a command vehicle to educate students on various types of tools currently in use by fire crews nationwide.
