VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 16, 2012) - On December 23rd, 2012, Bouygues Energies and Services Canada (Bouygues E&S) started operations of the "E" Division (British Columbia) Headquarters of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, in Surrey British Columbia.
With a floor area of 76,000 M2, and with a project value of C$ 966 million, the project is the largest federal government project outside the National Capital Region. Delivered as a 25 year (plus 2 years of construction) Private Public Partnership with Public Works and Government Services Canada, this project has been able to harness world class best practices in the facility management of secured facilities thanks to Bouygues E&S' extensive experience in other high security police, military and controlled environment installations in North America, Europe, the Middle East and the United Kingdom.
The facility is designed to the LEED Gold standard, and operated in compliance with BOMA BEST Level 3 standards, incorporating leading edge energy saving technologies such as chilled beam in the place of traditional energy intensive heating/cooling systems. Bouygues E&S' operating scope includes technical services and maintenance, helpdesk, housekeeping, food services, grounds maintenance, parking management, lifecycle and minor works. In addition, Bouygues E&S provided the design review and advisory services during the construction phase to assure optimal operational efficiency and flexibility to meet the RCMP's present and future needs. Finally, Bouygues E&S provides all the investment company (SPV) management services, including the financial and general management of the project company dedicated to this facility, to assure long term alignment between facility services delivery and critical RCMP operations.
Anthony McCord, C.E.O. of Bouygues Energies and Services Canada, stated, "we are proud to deliver on our promise to the Government of Canada and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. This advanced security facility further adds to Bouygues Energies and Services's portfolio of large and complex facilities under management in Canada and abroad. We are particularly pleased with the strong partnership we have created with Public Works Government Services Canada and the RCMP which will allow us to deliver a best in class environment aligned to their needs over the long term."
