Bylaw Services moved from operating out of the RCMP Services Building into the Fire Hall in 2014. The Firehall was not originally designed to support providing services and accessibility to the public at large and as such has seen interior renovations over the past couple of years and the outside rehabilitation of a sidewalk provide direction to the public and keep them away from the emergency exists for firehall service vehicles.
The rear rehabilitation work supports constructing positive storm water management from the site. The training facility uses significant volumes of water and the site was becoming saturated with signs of established trees falling over and the generator pad heaving. The construction will support positive drainage away from the site and ensure the building is not impacted.
From conception in 2017 through to construction completion, the Town of Hinton and ISL Engineering and Land Services, work in partnership to design, engineer and deliver a project on schedule and budget. GS Construction, the General Contractor, is the successful bidder from the Pre-Qualification(RFPQ) tendering process and has worked with the Town of Hinton and ISL Engineering and Land Services. Together we have been able to design and achieve cost savings in the budget through using everyone’s expertise. Border Paving (a local business) is also recognized as supporting the project with their local knowledge.
