Emergency Training Academy
Big Bang Theory
Steel City’s emergency services training site proves quick to respond.
- Three’s company
Site features a three storey Training Support Building housing complementary offices for Police, Fire, and EMS, among other centres.
- Campus life
The campus design approach to the facility consists of four separate buildings including a fire station, an administrative building, an indoor training centre and a burn tower.
- Dirty work
Training centre includes 25 m indoor firing range, defensive tactics training facilities, “dirty classrooms”, outdoor, multi-storey burn and smoke tower training prop, and a single-storey, state-of-the-art fire station.
- Quick trigger
Due to federal infrastructure funding deadlines the schedule was reduced by 40%, resulting in unique design and delivery challenges. The result was an extremely collaborative engagement which saw the entire project cycle from start until occupancy completed in just 20 months.
