Ingonish RCMP Detachment

Project Stats

Type: New Build
Client: RCMP 'H' Division
Location: Ingonish, NS
Size: 510 m2
Delivery Method:

The project involves complete architectural and engineering services for a small rural RCMP detachment of approximately 510m2 plus 70m2 of cold storage, in accordance with Atlantic Region program requirements for small detachments.

This project was unique given employees of the RCMP led the design and construction phases. It is the first design of its type in Canada, and will serve as a template for three new RCMP detachments in Newfoundland and Labrador in the near future.

Features of the new building include a state-of-the-art thermal design, automated lighting and plumbing fixtures, and a flexible design concept that will allow for future additions and renovations. The detachment also features a fully functional cell pavilion with secure cells, a breath-testing and fingerprinting area, and a secure bay for prisoner transfers. In collaboration with DSRA Architects.
