This building replaced the existing detachment building due to growth in the area and is designed for a C4+20 occupancy. The building contains a 7-cell detention component, public support areas, administration and clerical offices, police function areas, building services and staff areas, and multipurpose/community room. Provision was made for additional storage space to provide expansion space over the next 20 years.
The new detachment contains a clerestory along the main corridor providing natural lighting to the interior spaces. The rotunda contains images reflecting the City’s long-standing historical ties to the RCMP. The building utilized “green” construction materials and sustainable design and remained consistent with the Fort Saskatchewan Community Sustainability Plan. The design incorporated strategies from CPTED – Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design.
