City of Vancouver Zero Emissions Fire Hall
Vancouver, British Columbia

About the project

The City of Vancouver Zero Emissions Fire Hall project is a new fire hall being designed to a post disaster standard. The new building is being designed to be certified to a Passive House standard to reduce energy consumption as much as possible, will use no fossil fuels, and will also be certified to a LEED gold standard. The design will incorporate the generation of on-site renewable solar PV energy in order to offset all of the remaining greenhouse gas emissions, to meet the requirements of the CaGBC’s Zero Carbon Building Framework, and is being used as a demonstration project to develop a new zero emissions building standard for future City of Vancouver owned buildings.
