Emergency Services

more than just buildings

S2’s award winning Emergency Services portfolio is comprised of a variety of projects focusing on public safety and emergency preparedness. Whether it be a rural fire station, an EMS station, a call centre, a crisis management centre or a Multi Services facility, we are committed to designing buildings that are functional, durable and sustainable.

We go beyond the practical – our designs focus on civic context, human scale, technological advancements and innovative emergency service response concepts. Our goal is to design buildings that enhance the work environment of our first responders in which they work and live.

Our experience results in knowledge-based critical thinking that creates cost- effective, innovative designs that are particularly well suited to the unique and specialized needs of our clients. We actively lead our clients through a complete design process ensuring that the delivered facility is an accurate reflection of their vision and intent. In addition to design, we are able to lead our clients through the entire process, including feasibility studies, programming, value engineering, construction cost estimating, financial analysis, tendering, contract negotiations and construction administration.

Though designed primarily as safety and service hubs, these amenities must also respond to the aesthetic, cultural and budgetary needs of the communities, towns and cities they serve. S2 knows that great design focuses on the heart of the neighborhoods they serve and should illicit civic pride within our communities.
