The new 30,000 sq.ft. Brandon Fire and Emergency Services Building replaces the outdated facility originally built for horse and carriage in 1909. The two storey facility is divided into two formal components, a fire hall wing and an administrative wing whose separation creates a welcoming entry for the public through the landscaped plaza on the east. Severing the two components through the formal gesture of a pivot, appropriately orients the fire hall wing with the street, and aligns the administrative wing with the creek to the northwest.
