Port Moody Fire Hall
Client: City of Port Moody
Prime Consultant: Chernoff Thompson Architects
Location: Port Moody, BC
Completion: February 2014
The Port Moody Fire Hall is state of the art, located directly next to the City Hall in the heart of Port Moody. It has two sets of high bay parking areas for seven trucks, including four drive-through primary truck bays and three secondary truck bays. The building also includes administrative offices, dormitory facilities, on-call and training facilities and a vintage truck exhibit.
The site is immediately adjacent to an environmentally sensitive wetland and had significant geotechnical challenges, requiring careful planning and coordination. The facility had been designed with mechanical and electrical systems that are ‘green’ in nature. Several sustainable elements had been put in place within this facility including a grey water retrieval tank filter system and glulam roof beams. In addition, this facility was built to post disaster standards. The total size of this building is 20,936 sq. ft.
