Project Stats

Type: Planning & Design
Client: Town of View Royal
Location: View Royal, BC
Size 2,788m2

In 2008 KMBR was engaged by the Town of View Royal to provide programming, site analysis and schematic design services for a new fire hall that would replace the existing, which aside from having reached the end of it s service life, was to be relocated to make way for a road widening.

A focal point of this four-bay state-of-the-art fire hall is the fully glazed bay doors that proudly display the fire apparatus inside. A 16ft high glazed entrance lobby doubles as display space for historical fire fighting artifacts. A two-story administration wing would house offices, fitness room, kitchen, and recreation facilities for the volunteer fire fighters. A four-story hose drying tower is designed to provide opportunities for high angle rescue, rappelling and other important training manoeuvres.
