Preserving the peace
Consolidating RCMP operations across the Lower Mainland
A purpose-built complex consolidating office and support space for 2,700 police personnel previously spread throughout 25 separate locations was needed. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) needed a facility that would enhance their ability to provide integrated, intelligence-based policing, and improve overall communication and response times.
To tackle a job of this size, the largest federal accommodation project in the Pacific Region, a Public-Private-Partnership was formed with Green Timbers Accommodation Partners and the Government of Canada. Kasian was appointed by the Design-Build team to lead the design of this large LEED Gold Certified facility.
Design development forums and workshops were held with representatives of the project team to ensure that all specific requirements were integrated and coordinated and that important matters with respect to construction, operation, maintenance, resilience, life cycle, safety and energy were addressed and optimized.
It has taken an enormous effort from a very talented, integrated team to bring this project to fruition. We have built an effective partnership with the Government of Canada and look forward to working together for the next 25 years to ensure that this building is properly maintained and kept in optimal condition
