LEED Silver

Hamilton Fire Hall

Hamilton Fire Hall, a satellite fire station, combines key concepts of sustainable architecture with the specific programmatic needs of the Richmond Fire Department. Key to the building are its numerous LEED features such as a geothermal ground source field, green roofs, and solar collectors. The integration of the site with the landscape allows storm water to be filtered directly into the surrounding wetlands through the use of an extensive bio-swale while the sloped roof forms collect rainwater into large cisterns to be for grey water recycling. These innovative features are juxtaposed with traditional fire hall materials such as brick masonry, to produce a contemporary architectural solution well suited to the fire department and local area. The project was a F.I.E.R.O Top Honor Award winner amongst submissions throughout all of Canada and the US.
