RCMP Headquarters

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Headquarters

Surrey, British Columbia

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation… Surrey!

Endless comings and goings and communication difficulties across long distances are now a thing of the past. With its brand new Head Office, Division E of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is now grouped together in a single location, an ultramodern complex in the city of Surrey. The RCMP staff had previously been spread all over the Vancouver region on 20 different sites. Its new HQ alone now has space for almost 1,500 people. 

The complex is set in a nature park of more than 7.6 hectares and includes a seven-storey office building, a multi-storey car park with 1,810 places, a technical services building and a two-storey data-centre. In addition, a crime lab is on the drawing board and could soon be built.

Bouygues Building Canada handled the design, construction and financing and will be in charge of upkeep and maintenance of the premises for a 25 year period. With an aim of achieving a sustainable reduction in the impact of these buildings on the environment at each stage of operations, the ambition is for this project to obtain LEED Gold certification.

The award

In November 2010, in Toronto, The Canadian Council for PPP awarded the project with the Merit for Innovation and Project Partnership. This award honours the innovative organization of the Consortium formed by Bouygues Building Canada, ETDE FM Canada and HSBC Infrastucture and of the Federal Government’s integrated project team. The project stands out for its high degree of collaboration between the public and the private partners.
