Public Safety Building

The new four bay state-of-the-art fire hall includes a four-storey hose tower, a twostorey
administration wing, four future suites and a large training ground. The rocky
site has been carved away to set the fire hall into the tiered landscape which allows
second floor access from the tiered parking lots. The hall’s exterior is clad in clear
cedar, Swiss pearl, metal panel, Extira, brick and architectural finished concrete.
The four automated bays have coloured concrete radiant heat floors and storefront
windows from the floor to the vertical grain fir ceiling. The building houses multiple
offices, locker rooms, a fitness room, sleep rooms, an association room, a kitchen,
climate controlled turnout gear room, shop, a laundry facility and a large multipurpose
meeting room. Notable systems include an automated audio visual call out
alarm system, facility lighting controls and access control.

Historically speaking

The Commercial Building Awards were started in 1991 by a group of REALTORS® who were concerned that commercial development within the Greater Victoria area was not receiving the recognition it deserved.

The Commercial Building Awards competition is recognized among architects, builders and developers and the real estate community as a prestigious event dedicated to the advancement of excellence in construction and design. Because of its success, the Victoria Commercial Building Awards program is now being emulated by various real estate boards throughout BC and across Canada.

The Commercial Division of the Victoria Real Estate Board is dedicated to advancement in quality developments and to encouraging a better environment within our community and is proud to sponsor this annual competition.
