Boldwing Continuum was commissioned by the City of Surrey to provide architectural, interior design and building envelope services for the renovation of their existing Fire Hall #6.
The Fire Services Department was mandated to extend the lifespan of this municipal facility by another 15 years, with the primary objective to improve personnel liveability and response time within the facility. Additional requirements included updating the exterior finishes as permitted by budget and provide a greater civic presence.
The interior renovation involved the reconfiguration and refurbishment of the common living area, galley kitchen, dispatch radio room, gear turnout room, captain's office and quarters as well as the relocation of the weight room to the main floor. In accordance with new requirements, the renovation also included the provision of washrooms, locker and change rooms for both genders along with upgraded sleeping quarters.
The exterior renovation was limited to the replacement of the original single-glazed windows, entrance doors and the repainting of the existing siding and facia, thereby permitting the majority of the funding to be expended on the liveability of the facility.
