Recently BNP Industries reached out to Global Steel Buildings Canada for the supply of a pre-engineered metal building to erect a new fire station on Christian Island, Beausoleil First Nation. BNP’s philosophy is closely aligned to Global Steel Building’s Canada, insofar as the customer is priority.
We were able to deliver a pre-engineered metal building to meet the specific needs for this project. The building will be an 11,000 square foot structure. This project has been in the works for 10 years and is budgeted at $3 million. This is the first permanent fire station for the Beausoleil First Nation History.
Metal is versatile and durable
Because it is versatile and durable, a metal building is ideal for a fire station. The material is 100% recyclable and the building is therefore environmentally friendly. Our clear span design was ideal for this project. With no posts limiting space usage, the building is able to accommodate the fire department’s two pumpers, one tanker and one command truck.
The fifteen volunteer firefighters will be working in a building that is not prone to insect infestation or rot and will be able to be expanded with add-ons over time if required.
Our buildings can employ mezzanine floors to facilitate maximum storage and office space. At the fire station locker and training space will be required in addition to administrative offices. By finishing the building with stucco, brick, stone or insulated panels, the exterior will have a pleasing and upscale appearance.
Pre-engineered metal buildings are a great choice for public buildings like fire stations. They are also a good choice for other public buildings including:
- police stations
- recreational facilities
- public administration buildings
- public works
- municipalities salt or truck storage
- school transportation
