Edmundston Police Station and Office Building

Project Info

This project consists of a new 2-storey, 4,000± m² office building and police station. City Police Services is housed in one building wing and, through a common lobby, commercial office space in another wing. The main buildings were constructed with structural steel framing and the underground portions were constructed using cast-in-place concrete. Compositely designed floor beams were used for economy, fire resistance and vibration resistance. The secure holding and cell area was constructed of loadbearing concrete block supporting an independent structural slab ceiling. Seismic loads were resisted by steel bracing. The bracing locations and configurations were determined based on Architectural planning requirements.
