The centre has meeting rooms for BC Health Services and dispatch training, a call/dispatch centre for Vancouver Island and houses four ambulances.
In the fast growing Westshore community there was a pressing need for this facility.
It is located to provide timely access to the Malahat and beyond for efficient emergency response times.
It has a natural backdrop and vaulted ceilings with ample windows to provide natural light within.Focusing on health and wellness within the structure, green materials were used to build the centre.
Pine beetle wood was used for soffits and portions of the exterior cladding for example.
