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:
Door and Window Restoration
Mechanical (const. pending)
Electrical Upgrade (const. pending)
Structural Stabilization and Reinforcement (const. pending)
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.
