Project Details

AME was retained as the mechanical consultant for the Town of Sidney’s new Community Safety Building. The new two-storey building is comprised of a fire hall with four double-apparatus bays, an on-site training tower and training area, and a two-bay BC Ambulance Service with associated support facilities.

Flexible spaces, along with multiple training rooms, a decontamination room, and locker/shower facilities, and Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) configurations support all providers of emergency services to the Town of Sidney.
