RCMP DRILL HALL

The RCMP Drill Hall, designed by Regina architects Van Egmond and Storey, was originally built as a Riding Stable in 1929. Over the years renovations had taken place that had removed or concealed some of the building's original features. The rehabilitation project designed by SEPW Architecture included removal of a dropped ceiling and exposing the original steel trusses, thereby re-instating the original volume of the interior space. The underside of the existing roof deck was insulated using spray-applied polyurethane insulation to provide both thermal and air barrier.

As the building is used for a variety of functions, that include drill practice, parade, formal dinners and presentations, appropriate sound attenuation was needed. This was provided by integrating fabric-covered sound absorption panels between trusses. The hardwood flooring was replaced using a non-resilient system, required for drill practice. New bleacher seating was added to replace the old ones, and new fibreglass windows resembling the pattern of the original steel frame windows were installed. A new mechanical HVAC system and perimeter hot water system were included in the renovations. A fire sprinkler system was installed and the electrical service was completely replaced to meet the new standards at the RCMP Academy. A new dimmable lighting system was designed to allow the flexibility required for the various functions that will occur within the space.
