The South Calgary Fire Station (No. 5) was based on a new City of Calgary and Calgary Fire Department deployment model which addresses reduced response time, quicker turnout time and fully electronic alerting and notification elocution. This Fire Station was designed to fit within the City of Calgary’s emergency response network and to provide 100% capacity for community crisis management.
Our design team was challenged to produce a stand-alone fire station not connected to City utilities or relying on other grid systems for its emergency needs. The building features a number of green technology applications including an energy-efficient building envelope, a High Solar Reflective Roof, stormwater utilization for irrigation, xeriscaping, a high efficiency heating and cooling system and indoor pollutant source control.
