Edmonton Police Northwest Campus

Project Description

The Edmonton Police Northwest Campus is a 180,000 square foot facility built at the the north-west gateway to the city and came in at 1,200 tonnes of steel. It is a combination of five different facilities: the Northwest Division station, recruit training, employee development, force information management, and detainee management.

Some of the unique steel features of the facility include:

  • The curved roof, which affected the modelling, connecting, and detailing stages
  • A 18.5 tonne "toblerone" truss had to be shipped in multiple stages
  • Curved design in the north, east, and south walls impacted the glazing requirements
  • Significant communication between the project's detailers, fabricator, erector, and suppliers due to the unique architecture.
