Spring Creek Fire Hall


Whistler, BC

As part of its commitment to a sustainable community, the Resort Municipality of Whistler commissioned hcma to design and construct a LEED®-certified fire hall employing cost efficient green building principles. The use of recycled building materials and incorporation of green building strategies reflects the client’s concern for protecting and minimizing impact to its natural setting. As a shared-use facility, it serves an important civic function as a teaching facility on “green building” and fire and safety training.

As a LEED project the facility features a green roof, post-consumer/post-industrial recycled content including recycled formwork and rebar, natural ventilation, storm water return, snow retention as insulation, non-SFC-based refrigerant HVAC & R system, dual-flush low-water toilets, Green Power certificates, low-toxicity interior materials (e.g. low VOC paints), local material sourcing, and end-of-trip amenities for bicycles including shower change room, storage and bike racks.
