Coldstream Fire Station

G. Douglas Vallee Limited is currently active on a unique project for Middlesex Centre.  This municipality is very progressive regarding sustainable design and construction of buildings. With this goal in mind, Vallee has the role of Project Manager and Prime Consultant for the proposed fire hall in the community of Coldstream. Working with our team of specialty designers and sustainability experts, the Vallee team is working towards the design of a truly sustainable fire hall.

It is our goal to design a truly Net Zero Energy / Carbon Neutral Fire Station.  This means that over the course of a year, the building will generate an amount of energy equal to or greater than the amount of energy that the building consumes within a year. We believe that this may be the first Net Zero Energy / Carbon Neutral fire hall in Canada.


G. DOUGLAS VALLEE LIMITED is excited to announce that Michael J. Rapai, P.Eng., has acquired a license to practice as a Professional Engineer from Professional Engineers Ontario. Mike is a Norfolk County native, raised in Delhi,  and a graduate of Holy Trinity Catholic High School in Simcoe. He earned a Bachelor of Applied Science (Civil – Structural/Geotech Engineering) from the University of Ottawa in 2008. He began his engineering internship with a respected structural engineering firm in Ottawa. He returned to Norfolk County and came to G. DOUGLAS VALLEE LIMITED in 2009 to continue his training and work toward obtaining his professional license.

Mike’s primary field of practice at VALLEE within the Structural Engineering Department is bridge design and construction; working with local municipalities such as Norfolk, Haldimand, and Brant. His work also supports our Architectural Department, which includes custom homes, schools, churches, medical facilities and commercial projects.

Please join us in congratulating Mike in reaching this important milestone in what we hope to be a long and fruitful career at  G. DOUGLAS VALLEE LIMITED!
