The City Centre Fire Station is a two-story state-of-the-art fire station. The lower level features materials with a charred surface, while the upper level boasts a golden wood finish. Abundant natural light floods the interior through large windows, seamlessly connecting the firefighters with their surroundings.

The building’s structural system is composed of solid wood elements for walls and floors, glued laminated timber beams and columns, as well as steel beams. The closely spaced timber forms an eye-catching coffered ceiling. Sweco has designed and optimized the structural system and engineered the connections.

Not only does the modern and minimalist design of the fire station exude aesthetic appeal, but it also prioritizes the safety and comfort of the firefighters. The building seamlessly integrates with a series of innovative and sustainable timber structures that preserve and enhance the surrounding environment. Moreover, the rooftop garden promotes ecological diversity through the use of local plant species and habitats for pollinating insects. The Central Fire Station has obtained BREEAM-NOR Excellent environmental certification.
