Cherry Creek Fire Hall Feasibility Study
Port Alberni, British Columbia
In 2008, we were commissioned to conduct a feasibility study to examine present and future needs of the Cherry Creek Fire Hall. We looked at the existing facility and three alternate sites to determine possible expansion solutions, and the possibility of a new building in a different location.
We assessed user needs, space requirements, and budget constraints based on information we gathered from client interviews and from our own experience with this type of building. The different sites were analyzed and several design concepts were developed for each site. After thorough evaluation, one site and a respective layout plan was recognized as the best solution. The final 11,574 sf. (1,075 m2
) design solution best fit the needs of the community within a reasonable budget.
Following the submission of this feasibility report to the client, we provided them with informative presentation material such as 3D renderings, elevations, and plans of the proposed facility. Along with these materials, and outline budget and drawings, the client was enabled to present the required material and information to their governing board to obtain funding for the project.
