Ft. Macleod NWMP Barracks
The NWMP Barracks reconstruction in Fort Macleod was an opportunity to revive history through a historic place. As a reconstruction project initiated and spearheaded by the Riders of the Plains, Fort Macleod reflects the spirit and pride that is associated with the Northwest Mounted Police and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Through a common dedication by all participants involved in the project towards portraying an accurate recording of history, a legacy of the NWMP (RCMP) in Canadian History has been preserved.

RKH Architecture was able to partner with the Fort Macleod Museum, Town of Fort Macleod, District Agricultural Society, Riders of the Plains and the RCMP to develop plan for the re-construction of the original Fort to be left as a legacy for future generations. The plans discreetly incorporated modern technologies to the building envelopes, systems and infrastructure for a functional, accessible and sustainable facility on the original site. Maintaining the historical integrity of the original site was a key component to the planning.
