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.
