SWMW’s Experience In The Construction Industry

With over 40 years of experience, the Southwest and Midwest Design & Construction team has established itself as a leader in the construction industry across Alberta and Inuvik, NT.

Our background as fire hall contractors empowers us to bring knowledge and expertise to these projects. We understand that fire hall construction usually takes place under municipal jurisdiction, and with that can come specific cost efficiency requirements, and we pride ourselves on consistently delivering exceptional and on-budget results.

Over the last decade, we’ve had the opportunity to work on several fire hall construction projects – here are just a few:

Recent Fire Hall Construction Projects

DeBolt Fire Hall Addition


Back in 2016, the Southwest and Midwest Design & Construction team built what’s now the DeBolt Fire Hall, with the Municipal Department of Greenview as the project owner. This facility is actually one of two identical fire halls built in the Grande Prairie area – with the other hall located in Grovedale.

The building measures 17,500 square feet and features a 12″ thermal roof system, 4″ steel foam wall panelling, in-floor heating, hose drying and training towers, and a STARS Air Ambulance helipad.

Through our network of building engineers, the SWMW team learned that as of 2022, the Municipal Department of Greenview was looking to add another bay to the fire hall, and we were awarded the job.

Having worked with this project owner before, the DeBolt Fire Hall is yet another example of the importance of building strong relationships with our clients and with our suppliers and engineers.

Piikani Fire Hall


We had the unique privilege of partnering with our client to oversee the build of the first fire hall facility in the Alberta community of Brocket. The Piikani Fire Hall is a 9,036 sq. ft. pre-engineered insulated metal panel building that can effectively serve the community's needs, and that also has enough space to accommodate future expansion if need be.

The building's unique security requirements were also taken into consideration, with the use of specialty door hardware and key card access.

When we reflect on this project, one key takeaway for us is the importance of maintaining excellent communication between all parties involved. The SWMW team ensured that the client remained informed throughout the construction process, which helped to foster a very positive relationship with the client even in the face of supply chain issues and cold weather concerns.
