Sustainable design is important for any new building project. G. Douglas Vallee Limited is proud to be the Prime Consultant, Architect, Structural and Civil / Site Engineer to Middlesex Centre for what is believed to be Canada’s first Net Zero and Carbon Neutral Fire Station. Geothermal heating and cooling, photovoltaic power, outstanding building envelope design, building orientation, roof design, and the incorporation of natural light within the building were all key considerations in achieving this standard in sustainable design.  This facility has set a standard for sustainable design for fire stations across Ontario with numerous other municipalities and architects touring the competed station to see "how this was achieved.” The Fire Station is located on Ilderton Road in the hamlet of Coldstream and serves as an example for other communities that net zero buildings are possible at a reasonable cost.
