The emphasis of the project was to design and research different methods to improve the livability and health of fire fighters that reside in the stations. As we all know, fire fighters are exposed to many toxic carcinogens in their everyday lives. Students went through in-depth research on spatial separations, decontamination areas, and mechanical systems for the improvement of fire stations. Along with the research involved, students went to the local fire station in located at Queen Street West, Brampton, Ontario, for a site visit. This fire station was the central building that students were to design for. They were given the existing plans and had to design based on the research they have acquired.
