Maryborough Fire and Rescue Station and QFES North Coast Region Headquarters
The Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Station and Regional Headquarters at Maryborough comprises 3 Purpose Built Buildings and Alterations and Additions to the existing Fire Station. The Regional Headquarters and Training Tower, and Fire Station Turnout and Engine Room are entirely built from Cross Laminated Timber and Glu- Laminated Timber.
A demonstration of the use of sustainable, renewable materials in a State Government Building, the project is an exemplar for future buildings of this typology that seek to genuinely reduce carbon emissions, with this building saving approximately 500 Tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.
The Key project team includes Hutchinson Builders, Hyne Timber and XLam, Bligh Tanner Structural Engineers, and the UQ Future Timber Hub. Photography by Christopher Frederick Jones.
