Institutional | STUART OLSON – EDMONTON NEW REMAND CENTRE Edmonton’s Epic Centre W A MASSIVE CORRECTIONAL FACILITY IN EDMONTON, ALBERTA, WILL BE CANADA’S LARGEST. hile building a massive project for Alberta Infrastructure and Transportation, general contractor Stuart Olson is relying on old-fashioned teamwork. “As a progressive builder and construction manager, our team-based approach results in quality – in our building and relationships,” the company states. Stuart Olson is acting as construction manager on the $524 million Edmonton New Remand Centre, which will be finished in November 2011. The facility will consist of 610,000 square feet in nine buildings on 42 acres. “The Edmonton New Remand Centre will be the largest correctional facility in Canada,” the company states. “Once completed, the facility will be able to house 1,947 inmates in 981 cells. The project includes a healthcare clinic, a mental health unit, full-service kitchen, laundry facilities, administration space, admission and discharge units, segregation units and general population pods.” The New Remand Centre was designed by ONPA Architects to resemble a modern, low-rise office building. The site’s landscaping will act as a buffer between the site’s buildings, and the enclosed exercise yards and exterior lighting are designed to decrease the impact on the surrounding neighborhood. ONPA has ample experience in designing large correctional facilities, including the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Institute, which is one of the largest facilities in Alberta. In addition to being built primarily for provincially sentenced inmates, the facility has many unique features to provide the highest level of security. “The security is both dynamic and static, allowing guard interaction while retaining the master control room,” ONPA explains. “A large, inward-curving concrete perimeter and a secondary inner fence that is electronically monitored provide a high level of security. Inmates are all housed within living units, and there are no typical steel cell bars in the entire facility.” The institute also includes a central services building, which offers inmates a dining facility, recreation area, shops and classrooms for vocational programs. ONPA works on a variety of project types, including industrial, educational, residential, recreational, cultural and defense. As it did on the Fort Saskatchewan and New Remand Centre projects, the firm says it always gets deep into a project to provide the highest level of service. “The ONPA team is a focused, energetic group that enjoys its work and work well together in various changing team configurations,” it states. “This spirit of passion and excitement is there for every client and every project in which we participate. Our client’s success is our success. “We have an established, solid reputation based on service excellence with equal emphasis on planning, design, construction technology and contract administration. We make each project a work of pride for everyone involved.” CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM DECEMBER 2009
