Recently completed, this new 1,420m2 fire hall includes an office area and three-lane apparatus bay. The electrical design included lighting and controls, generator, photovoltaics, firefighter dispatch alert system, and power and low-tension systems. The design required an integrated team to develop a high-performance building system, utilizing passive design techniques, such as the building envelope, daylighting, and natural ventilation.

This was a pilot project with the goal of being the first Net Zero facility for the City of Edmonton, and the parameters were established throughout the design process, which included energy-efficient active building systems, such as radiant heating and cooling systems, electrically supplied mechanical systems, and LED lighting and control systems throughout the facility and apparatus bay. In addition, we designed the head-end and rough-in for a full array of solar panels and incorporated onto the sloped roof so the photovoltaic system can produce as much power as the building consumes to offset any carbon emissions.

This project aligned with the 24-7 operating Mission Critical Facilities (MCF) facility type, as well as service categories, such as power studies including back up generation for the facility and energy-efficient lighting with daylighting controls.
