Protective Services building construction project

Background

Spruce Grove City Council has approved a project to renovate and expand the current Protective Services building, which is located at 36 Fifth Ave.

What construction work is being done?

This project, which will be done in a phased approach, will include:

  • expanding on land east of the current building to add new administrative offices, equipment bays, dorms and training space;
  • renovating the existing building; and
  • altering the field spaces adjacent to the current Fire Hall and Broxton Park School.

Once the expansion, which will add another 3,300 square metres of space to the building, is complete, staff will move into the new area to allow renovations to be completed in the existing facility.

The expansion will require the removal of an existing ball diamond and track. A new ball diamond, as well as a new class B soccer field, will be constructed south of the new building.

When is it happening?

The project will be done in a phased approach, with site preparation occurring at the end of June 2017 and construction commencing in early July.

Work that is expected to occur in 2017 will include:

  • the installation of new sports fields;
  • excavation and grading to prepare for the new building and parking areas;
  • some landscaping; and
  • the installation of deep services, curbs, gutters, sidewalks and a layer of asphalt.

Construction work will continue through the 2017 construction season and in general, the hours of work for construction will be Monday to Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The entire project will conclude in late 2019.

Fire/EMS and Enforcement service levels to the community will not be impacted during the construction and renovation phases.
