Emergency Services

Designing for function, safety and sustainability

S2’s award-winning emergency services portfolio is comprised of a range of projects focusing on public safety and emergency preparedness, including fire stations, EMS facilities, RCMP buildings, call centres, crisis management centres and multi-services facilities. We are committed to designing buildings that are functional, durable and sustainable, and that enhance the work environment of fire fighters, police and first responders. 

Though designed primarily as safety and service hubs, these ciritical facilities must also respond to the aesthetic, cultural and budgetary needs of the communities, towns and cities they serve. Good design focuses on developing neighbourhoods, serving citizens and fostering community pride.

Each project is unique and requires a customized approach. We work together with our clients in a thorough design process that results in a project that reflects their vision.
