After two years of planning and 14 months of construction, the new RCMP Ingonish detachment officially opened
This project was unique given employees of the RCMP led the design and construction phases. Principle design was completed by DSRA Architecture in association with KMBR Architects Planners Inc., and construction was done by Joneljim Concrete Construction (1994) Limited. It is the first design of its type in Canada, and will serve as a template for three new RCMP detachments in Newfoundland and Labrador in the near future.
Features of the new building include a state-of-the-art thermal design, automated lighting and plumbing fixtures, and a flexible design concept that will allow for future additions and renovations. The detachment also features a fully functional cell pavilion with secure cells, a breath-testing and fingerprinting area, and a secure bay for prisoner transfers. The new RCMP Ingonish Detachment will continue to serve the approximately 5,000 permanent residents of Ingonish and surrounding areas, as well as the roughly 400,000 annual visitors to the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
