The MNRF Fire Management Facility in Haliburton, Ontario, is a new 17,000 sq.ft building designed to provide MNRF emergency response crew’s new offices, training spaces and equipment storage to better prepare and respond to local wild fires. Our initial mandate was to achieve a LEED® Silver® certification upon completion, and through collaboration and teamwork we surpassed our goal and the building received LEED® Gold® certification by the Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC). LEED® green building program features include a geothermal ground source heat pump system, maximum solar passive heating during winter months, low flow plumbing fixtures with infrared sensor lavatories, rain water collection, sourced construction materials extracted within a 800km of the site and selecting materials with a low VOC (volatile organic compounds).
