Kinetic was engaged by the City of Port Moody to build the state-of-the-art, post-disaster firehall located directly next to City Hall in the heart of Port Moody. The 21,000 sq. ft facility 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 has significant geotechnical challenges requiring careful planning and coordination.
The Inlet Centre Fire Hall is an excellent example of Kinetic’s commitment to working with a client to maintain the budget and schedule. Early in the project, Kinetic identified a significant discrepancy between the budgeted cash allowance and the actual cost for site related work.
