Building Concept: West facing view
Keeping our residents safe and secure is a top priority of Rocky View County, and the construction of critical infrastructure, such as the new Langdon Emergency Services Building, reaffirms this commitment to providing quality community services with a view to the future.
In March 2018, Rocky View County Council gave the approval for the County to procced with the replacement of the current Langdon Fire Station. The project budget was approved in December 2018.
At the start of April, construction activity officially started at the site of the new Langdon Emergency Services building, the future home for fire and enforcement services for the community. Site preparation is underway and residents can be assured their safety and that of employees and contractors is always the number one priority, and particularly during the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
The architect is Group2 Architecture and the general contractor is CANA Management Ltd.
CANA has implemented enhanced protocols to reduce concerns around COVID-19, taking prudent steps to reduce risk to both their staff and area residents. This includes strengthening jobsite hygiene measures by providing hand sanitizer and disinfectant to all jobsites and conducting frequent and thorough cleaning of site trailers and washrooms; and following the guidelines set by the federal, provincial and municipal governments. These guidelines are already largely in practice throughout CANA’s jobsites but also reflect the Calgary Construction Association’s “Pandemic Planning for the Construction Industry”.
Additionally, all contractors will abide by the County noise bylaw
The current fire station had very humble beginnings in 1992 as an adapted grader shed. Because this station services a large quadrant in the southeast corner of the County, quite an array of equipment is required. The new station will address this, along with a variety of long-term needs with the inclusion of the necessary indoor storage space for all apparatus and fleet/equipment, training space for emergency services staff as well as satellite offices for the area Councillor, county administration, and RCMP.
The site design includes storms ponds and a large parking lot that could also serve as a gathering place for events.
Completion of the project is planned for the third quarter of 2021.
