PURPOSE: The purpose of this work is to re-develop the existing City Yards to provide a facility to accommodate the day-to-day functions and storage needs of the City’s Operations team. The site and facility design should provision for future growth as the needs of our operations grow and change.

BACKGROUND: The City of Fernie is a community of approximately 5,500 residents located on Highway No. 3 in the Elk Valley in southeastern British Columbia near the Alberta border. The Public Works Yard (Yards), located at 1492 Railway Avenue, provides a home base for our Operations team and includes equipment storage, material storage, office space, change/locker rooms, a break room, a mechanic shop, carpenter shop and vehicle and equipment fueling facilities. The Yards are comprised of ten significant buildings, including two of which that are slated for demolition due to imminent structural failure. The adjacent lot, 1350 Railway Avenue, is City-owned lands. In 2017/2018, the City commissioned a feasibility study to evaluate the existing condition of the buildings in the Yards, complete a needs analysis and programming study to determine potential spatial programming of the site, and a site evaluation. This study provided a recommended layout for the re-configured Yards, including space planning for new buildings, repurposing of some existing buildings, and demolition of buildings beyond repair.
