The LEED Gold Certified Richmond RCMP Main Detachment Unit includes holding cells, sally port, and victim services in addition to management, administration, operations and operational support areas. New mechanical systems included the entire HVAC system, which was required to comply with current standards and codes. A specialty ventilation system was designed for labs and holding cells. Energy modeling was used to optimize the system selection as well as evaluate envelope upgrade options while considering budget implications. An efficient heating and cooling plant was selected along with heat recovery for ventilation. A 15-panel solar array is used to pre-heat domestic hot water. Emergency power and redundancy requirements for mechanical systems were necessary to meet RCMP needs. Vehicle bays for light maintenance and investigations are also accommodated within the facility. Upgrades to the plumbing systems for roof drainage and sanitary waste systems were designed as well as upgrades and additions to the domestic hot, cold, and recirculation systems. This project covers an area of more than 100,000 sq.ft.
