Queensborough Fire Hall
1011 Ewen Ave.
In designing New Westminster's Firehall N.4, the architect's main design concept was to allow the building, its ramps and deck, to float above the river, orchard, and meadows surrounding it. Henriquez Partners and IBI Group, Architects in Joint Venture, decided to curve one side of the structure in reference to a ship's bow. The building represents a 2-bay drive-through firehall with a training room, training tower, training yard and living quarters for four. The building was completed in December 1998. Materials used were architectural form finish concrete and metal siding.
