In November of 2015, Greyback Construction entered into a contract with the Town of Osoyoos to construct a new, state of the art Fire Hall. The new hall replaced the town’s existing fire hall, which no longer met the functional, operational and safety requirements of the Osoyoos Volunteer Fire Department.
The new fire hall contains four apparatus bays, administrative space that includes offices, operational support and storage space, a training classroom, and a Multi-Purpose Community Meeting Space that also serves as the Town’s Emergency Operations Centre in the event of a disaster. The new fire hall is approximately 13,500 sf, with a 3,000 sf storage mezzanine.
The main roof and apparatus bays were constructed from a combination of concrete, glulam and wood framing. The training tower, mezzanine and equipment areas are a combination of masonry walls and crosslaminated timber panels. The remaining offices, kitchen and multipurpose rooms are constructed from traditional wood frame.
Greyback is proud to have worked closely with the Town of Osoyoos and the Osoyoos Volunteer Fire Department to complete this amazing facility which will service the Osoyoos area for years to come.
Heating: The building is equip with a geothermal field which integrates with a radiant floor heating system. Nederman System: The apparatus bay contains a Nederman Extraction System which reduces exhaust emissions from the fire trucks when indoors.
Training Tower: A 4 storey training tower is incorporated into the structure. This tower provides fire fighters a place to practice rescues from heights. It is fully functioning with water connections, rappelling anchors, balconies, etc.
Emergency Generator: All necessary building systems required to maintain operations during a power outage are connected to an emergency generator on site.
Fuel Station: An on site diesel fuel filling station is readily available to service equipment as needed.
