Steveston Fire Hall No.2
The City of Richmond’s Steveston Fire Hall No. 2 is a new construction project on a 33,000 sq.ft. site area. Its iconic design marks the gateway to the Steveston Community.
Certified LEED Gold this 8,000 sq.ft. 2-bay, drive-through facility is built to post-disaster standards and comprises three main spaces: the fire hall, fire engine bays and a 3-storey hose drying tower.

The fire engine bay has space for two fire trucks plus a turn out gear room, workshop, equipment repair room and mechanical rooms.
