Project DescriptionFROM THE AIBC:
Emergency services personnel are society's truest public servants and critical to the health, safety and resilience of the community. After extensive study, the City of Richmond decided to transform the Steveston Fire Hall into a new state-of-the-art facility. Despite strict technical requirements for fire hall construction, HCMA Architecture + Design sought a fresh design approach to blend firefighters' work and living spaces. Innovative sustainable design principles were paramount for this LEED(r) Gold certified project. Sustainable features include a geothermal system, solar water pre-heating and extensive recycled materials.
