Waterton RCMP Detatchment Building
The RCMP Detachment Building is a good example of the rustic architectural style that is often associated with the pre-1930 National Parks Buildings. The style is based on a Tudor-Revival motif featured by prominent roof lines and the use of simulated half-timbering with plain stucco walls. Field Stone surfaces were used to promote a distinct Canadian image that was in harmony with the natural surroundings of the National Parks.

The rehabilitation of the RCMP Waterton Detachment Buildings involved:
The rehabilitation of the RCMP Waterton Detachment Building required RKHA to design and coordinate a project through several phases of construction each with a different contractor. Phasing of the project was necessary to allow continued use of the active detachment facility by the RCMP and the shortened “off season” construction period.
