Nanoose Bay Fire Hall

The new 10,000 sf Nanoose Bay Fire Hall replaced the existing building, which was built on the same site and is a dedicated fire hall for use by fire suppression crews. This volunteer regional fire hall has 6 truck bays (3 apparatus bays) and basic operational quarters to accommodate up to 40 volunteer fire fighters with room in the future for dorm spaces and additional personnel as the community grows.

The project was not only designed to LEED-NC Silver principles and built to post disaster standards, but also follows a wood first policy which focuses on incorporating wood as a main element of the design revealing the structure as the final finish wherever possible. Nanoose Bay Fire Hall earned a station style volunteer station notable design award and is featured in Fire Chief Magazine, November 2013.
