FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The city has released an update for the new RCMP detachment.

Since the previous update in January, the installation of some of the structural steel, brace bays, and first-floor columns have been completed. The off-site fabrication of the mass timber panels is still being done, with some timber panels’ installation.

The pouring of concrete on the northern portion of the building has been done, and the electrical rough-ins and lines have started to be laid.

Next to be worked on will be the continuation of structural steel installation, the off-site fabrication of the mass timber panels, the on-site installation of those completed panels, and continued electrical work.

The groundbreaking for the new detachment was completed in June. The city announced tenders awarded for the project in August and December.

The $51.4 million project will house both municipal and provincial funded RCMP units and support staff. The Net-Zero Ready, 3-storey building will allow the city to showcase its commitment to energy conservation and is expected to be completed by January 2022.

More information on the new detachment can be found on the City’s website.
