The Dutch Settlement community in Nova Scotia was in need of a new fire station to replace the existing aging structure. The new two-storey facility was constructed using tilt-up precast concrete insulated sandwich panels. The station includes a three-door apparatus bay, office space, lounge areas, a kitchen, locker rooms and maintenance rooms. Designed to meet LEED Silver certification, the new environmentally-friendly building design features a ground source geothermal heating system, on-site storm water management system and post-consumer recycled content.
