A net zero carbon-ready building design that promotes public safety

Having worked with the RCMP on the design of several detachments throughout Newfoundland and across Atlantic Canada, our team has built a strong level of trust with the organization. This led to our involvement in the design of a new net zero carbon-ready building for the Rocky Harbour detachment.

Stantec was the prime consultant responsible for architects, engineering disciplines, and geotechnical. We provided full project scope from program review through to concept, contract documents, tendering, and contract administration services. The building design primarily consists of a single-story timber framed structure. Thermal design, automated lighting and plumbing fixtures, and a flexible concept that allows for additions and renovations are all features of the energy efficient facility. With a focus on function, our designers took the model from small community detachments to create an aesthetically pleasing building for the officers that fits within the rural community.

This new RCMP detachment combines staff spaces including offices, exercise facilities, a locker room, multipurpose room, storage and equipment rooms, cell block, and two vehicle bays. The modern facility replaces the previous 50-year-old building and serves as a template for future detachment designs in the province.
