Project Description

The new Fire Station 7 located in Mount Pleasant replaced the nearly 50 year old existing fire station. A new state-of-the-art facility was installed in the same location. The mechanical systems included installation of 3 new wall hung Viessmann Vitodens boilers, Armstrong system pumps, Heatlink in-slab hydronic heating in the apparatus bay and Watts trench drains. Infrared heaters were installed in the apparatus bay along with the Nederman fire truck exhaust system. The habitable areas of the fire station are temperature controller with a Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heat recovery system which utilizes refrigerant both for heating and cooling of the space and distributing through heat pump fan coils throughout the space. The heat recovery systems allow some of the indoor units to cool while others are heating which greatly reduces energy consumption. The new station includes 3 truck/apparatus bays, 6 new dorm rooms, fitness and learning spaces. MJS also relocated and built out the temporary fire station located near Edmonton Trail which housed the Fire Station 7 employees while the new facility was in construction.
