Halton Region Paramedic Services Station 17 and the Milton Fire Station No 5. | Milton, Ontario
As Milton experiences significant growth, the Town recognized a need for an additional fire station and partnered with Halton Region on a joint facility to house both a new Milton fire station and Halton paramedic station. MTE provided both environmental and civil engineering services including the detailed site grading, servicing and stormwater management design for re-zoning and site plan approval, as well as an Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) to identify areas of the site with potential contamination.
The 2,000-m2 (12,900-ft2) building will provide accommodation for Halton Region Paramedic crew and include an apparatus bay for emergency vehicles. The area which houses the Milton Fire Station will also provide accommodation for crew in addition to firefighting equipment storage, general maintenance and storage, office spaces, training rooms, a fitness room, a front vestibule unit, a hose tower, and an apparatus bay for fire trucks.
In the initial stages of the project, our team conducted a review of all previous background information in order to generate a base plan from which the schematic and detailed site engineering could be produced.
Our scope of work included providing a site grading and servicing plan for submission to the Town of Milton and Halton Region, along with a servicing strategy and stormwater management report.
Throughout the construction phase, our project team has provided contract administration, in addition to conducting site inspections to certify that the construction is being completed in accordance with the approved engineering drawings.
We also conducted an ESA to evaluate the condition of the site prior to development and as a result, our team found minimal areas of potential concern and were able to eliminate the need for ongoing assessments.
