Project Overview

The Toronto Paramedic Services – Multifunction Station at 330 Progress Avenue, situated near Highway 401, represents the City of Toronto’s latest facility dedicated to paramedic professionals and services. 

Designed with sustainability as a core principle, the station aims to achieve net zero energy and net zero carbon goals. This commitment is evident throughout its design, which not only provides functional spaces for both on and off-duty paramedics but also includes an educational center for training and recruitment activities.  

The vehicle bay, capable of housing 40 ambulances and 20 supervisor vehicles, features vestibules that minimize energy loss through overhead doors—a pioneering feature in Canadian ambulance facilities, reducing the building’s energy consumption by 17%. Furthermore, the use of a mass timber structure reduces embodied carbon by 34% compared to traditional steel structures, demonstrating the building’s environmental performance. Anticipated to be completed in 2024, the Station embodies a forward-thinking approach to sustainable infrastructure within Toronto’s paramedic services.
