The Evansburg Fire Hall project emerged from an agreement between Parkland County and Yellowhead County, and is intended to replace the aging Evansburg Fire Hall, which is more than 40 years old.
Arrow’s Mechanical and Civil teams were contracted by the team at BR2 Architecture and are currently working to design requirements for this new facility. Arrow’s Civil team has worked to design a site suitable for the new building, working closely with the requisite municipalities.
Given the requirement that this facility serve the community for upwards of 50 years, the Arrow team has had to pay particular attention to design to ensure longevity and cost efficiency.
Arrow’s Mechanical team designed HVAC systems to accommodate bays for emergency response vehicles (fire trucks and ambulances), administrative space (space for a Peace Officer, Fire Chief’s Office) the apparatus bay, gear rooms, the hose captain and chief offices, dining and training room, a dormitory, kitchenette space, fitness centre, and locker and change room. A heated snow melt ramp was designed to deal with excess snow.
The Evansburg Fire Hall is scheduled for completion in late 2017.
