The architect’s brief was to design a building that would aid in consolidating the EMS Headquarters into one centralised location and distribution point, as well as to bring an identity and civic presence to the EMS, reflecting the role that they play in society.

The design, both structurally and aesthetically, makes use of a selected pallet of materials which contribute towards a clean, yet interesting architectural experience. In addition to the main building, the site incorporates covered parking areas for ambulances, parking for staff, a carwash, a helipad, and a helicopter hangar – constructed almost entirely out of steel.
