This two-bay Fire Station was designed to service newly annexed residential lands while also supporting Fire Station #1. The building has two drive-through apparatus bays, eight dorm rooms and multiple support spaces. The design allows for expansion as an additional apparatus bay can be added. The plan is compact and contained entirely on one floor, allowing for optimized response and chute times.
The design evokes the modernity of the City of Leduc and creates a civic presence along highway 39 at the gateway to the new West End development. The 1.5 acre site is very narrow resulting in an efficient and tight floor plan. Great effort was taken in the design to marry civic image with cost-effectiveness. The building was designed to be sustainable, using a highly reflective roof, (reducing heat island effect), locally manufactured materials (reducing carbon footprint) and high energy-efficient Argon-filled durable panel glazing (reducing heating and cooling loads).
