3 vie for cop shop contract

And then there were three.

That's the number of companies still in the running to design and construct Kelowna's new $48M RCMP Detachment building.

The evaluation team, which consisted of three city staff members and two consultants, received a total of 10 responses to the Request for Qualifications initiated this past February.   

After the proposals were scored and reference checks conducted, the following three proponents were selected to proceed to the Design-Build proposal phase:

  • PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc.
  • Bird Design-Build Construction Inc.
  • Bouygues Building Canada

The next steps will see each proponent obtaining the necessary RCMP security clearances, then receiving the Performance Requirements to develop the proposals to design and build the facility. 

Selection of the final proposal is scheduled for the end of this year.

Construction is slated to begin in 2015 with occupancy intended for late 2017.

The new detachment will be built on city-owned land at the corner of Clement Avenue and Richter Street.

It will replace the 51-year-old Doyle Avenue detachment.
