The RCMP ‘E’ Division Headquarters Relocation Project is considered a major Crown initiative that relocated and consolidate existing RCMP headquarters units throughout Metro Vancouver to a new site in the City of Surrey.
The project is a public-private partnership (P3) between the Government of Canada and Green Timbers Accommodation Partners and represents PWGSC's largest federal accommodation project in Pacific Region to date and the first P3 for the Government of Canada.
The new 76,162 square-metre facility meets current safety and security standards and provides office and purpose built accommodation for over 2,700 ‘E’ Division Headquarters personnel.
The RCMP ‘E’ Division headquarters attained LEED Gold certification (LEED-NC 1.0 Gold Certification with 45 points) on November 13, 2013, incorporating the latest in green technology and standards for construction and facility management.
