A new RCMP detachment designed with modular components for ease of construction
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) required architectural and engineering services for site development and construction of a single story modular RCMP detachment. Located in a remote Indigenous community in Manitoba, the detachment comprises of administrative office space, specialized support spaces, detention areas, sally port, storage, service rooms, and garage bays.
Working with modular construction methodology provided both opportunities and constraints to the design of this facility. Since the location of the site required the use of a ferry to transport the modular units, our team worked with Manitoba Infrastructure to determine the maximum width, length and weight of each module. The modules were designed to look like one complete contemporary building where the modular design is not obvious, and the proposed wall cladding is a maintenance-free distinctive exterior befitting an RCMP facility. Materials consisted predominantly of pre-finished steel cladding, complete with extruded aluminum composite panel trim features.
The new detachment provides access to local law enforcement services that will protect and serve Norway House as well as its surrounding communities.
