In Association with Thomas Brown Architects
Green Propeller Design was instrumental in incorporating Guelph Police Service requirements into the design of this multi-faceted emergency services building. The Guelph Police Service, Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services (Ambulance) share this 30,000 sq. ft. building as the base for servicing the growing South end of the City. By sharing building systems it was hoped to reduce the total operating cost for the 3 services. The building is entirely barrier-free, and is designed to meet the requirements of LEED silver.
Sustainable design features include a wind turbine, on-site water recycling for truck washing, on-demand water heating and solar hot water heating, high efficiency HVAC system, and occupancy sensors in addition to high performance building envelope.
