New detachment for 100 Mile

Work expected to begin this month on new RCMP Detachment in 100 Mile House.

  • Dec. 12, 2013 6:00 p.m.

The RCMP is pleased to announce that Summit Brooke Construction of Abbotsford has been awarded the contract to construct the new RCMP Detachment in 100 Mile House. As general contractor, Summit Brook Construction will begin preliminary construction in December 2013.

The exterior façade of the new Detachment will be a mixture of corrugated metal panels, textured concrete blocks and prefinished metal windows. The roof is a sloping gable style, finished with prefinished metal panels and dormer windows that allow natural light into the public and administration areas of the main floor.

The Detachment will have a total floor area of approximately 1500m2. The main floor will have the police functional areas, the administration and clerical areas, and public entrance. There will be a separate mezzanine area where the mechanical and electrical services will be housed.

With 18 Members and nine civilian staff and volunteers, we have outgrown this facility. says Sergeant Don McLean. The overflow from the Detachment is currently being housed in a trailer attached to the north end. This new RCMP Detachment will be a tribute to the community for years to come.

It is anticipated that the Detachment will be completed by the spring of 2015.
