The Clair Road Emergency Services Centre is the newest station at the South End of Guelph. It is a 35,000 square foot building that houses shared facilities for Police, Fire and EMS who will provide emergency services to the south end of the city.

The facility, designed by Thomas Brown Architects, will encompass space for forty-five day-time police personnel, including a traffic unit and a Collision Reporting Centre. The EMS will have administrative offices for seven staff in addition to six paramedics operating two vehicles 24 hours, seven days a week, and one vehicle for 12 hours, seven days a week. Guelph Fire will have two crews of four fire fighters operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The public will also have access to a portion of the barrier-free facility, including:

  • Collision Reporting Centre
  • Community Room with attached kitchen
  • Safe Haven vestibule that has access to emergency dispatch for persons in distress
  • Community Living Wall in the main reception area
  • Emergency Services Memorial Parkette will be developed adjacent to Clair Road and will be accessible from the visitor parking area

LEED initiatives
This facility was designed and built to achieve the Canada Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification. The following is a list of the initiatives to pursue for LEED Silver:

  • achieving approximately 50% energy reduction (i.e. automatic lighting controls and occupancy sensors)
  • 30% water use reduction (i.e. low flow fixtures, no site irrigation)
  • 5% on-site energy generation (i.e. wind or solar power)
  • construction materials and assemblies from local sources (up to 800 km radius)
  • high recycled content and/or utilizing rapidly renewable resources (i.e. wheat board)
  • more than 75% construction waste diverted from landfill
  • 15% of all wood content from sustainable forests
  • high user control over interior environment (i.e. ample thermostats, operable windows)
  • 75% of interior spaces having daylight and views of the exterior
  • low VOC interior finishes
  • shower facilities and bike storage to encourage less dependence on auto transport
  • no ozone-depleting chemicals in HVAC systems
  • exterior luminaries which reduce light pollution
  • on-site recyclables collection, rainwater harvesting for flushing of toilets, truck fill and truck washing
  • implementation of a green housekeeping plan (i.e. solvent free cleaners)
