The town of Carlyle, Saskatchewan could not be more excited for the new Fire Hall slated to be completed late this year or early next year.
The Carlyle Fire Department will soon have a building that is just over 11,000 sq.ft with 6 bays (two being drive through bays), a meeting room, an office, a multi-purpose room and his and her bathrooms. This new Fire Department will be much roomier – allowing all necessary equipment to be stored all year round, and giving the occupants/firefighters enough space to successfully go about their daily tasks.
This new Fire Hall is being built with Insulated Concrete Forms, a new building method for a fire hall in the entire province; featuring several components that will be functional and durable for years to come .
ICFs in a Fire Hall (and any structure for that matter) will lower operating costs, provide a constant indoor temperature due to its insulation properties and provide good sound mitigation. This is beneficial since the firefighters spend a substantial amount of time in the Fire Hall — to sleep or rest; in which ICFs offer that comfort. ICFs will also make the building disaster resilient, fire resistant and durable, providing firefighters with security, confidence and ample time to attend to emergencies without being restrained or affected from natural causes.
