Located on a well-traveled corner among new commercial and residential developments, this new fire station complements its context while conveying a prominent civic presence. A combination of rusticated stone, brick, and precast concrete elements relate to Milton’s historic downtown core while imparting a sense of durability and longevity. The west side of the building accommodates the Town’s Fire Department Headquarters, designed to full FADS accessibility standards c/w a 3 person dispatch centre. To the east are 3 Drive-Through double-length Apparatus Bays, Bunker and Gear Areas, Day Room/Lounge, Exercise Room, Dormitories, and Locker Rooms. The entire facility was designed to LEED Silver status with green and sustainable design elements including: cool roofing, low-flow plumbing fixtures, recycled content in the building materials, charging stations for electric vehicles, daylight harvesting and passive ventilation systems.
