Bid and Spec

Located in Dartmouth’s Burnside Business Park, the RCMP’s new Nova Scotia headquarters is an environmentally efficient workspace that accommodates all headquarters staff from 10 offices in one facility.

The new headquarters embraces state-of-the-art technologies that allow the RCMP to undertake sophisticated investigations with a focus on keeping our citizens and communities safe and secure.

We provided all HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection (sprinkler) systems for this new construction. The sprinkler system was a glass ball system and includes total pre-action packs. Challenges included an arced (curved) building footprint with no square corners and high-security access throughout.

We also constructed two special mechanical systems, a partial lab airflow system, and a complete Optinet air sampling system. The Optinet system takes samples of air remotely throughout the facility and routes them to a centralized suite of sensors, providing intelligent input to building ventilation systems for energy efficiency and high-quality indoor environmental quality.
