This high-rise downtown Remand Centre is located adjacent to the Provincial Law Courts.
The superstructure was constructed using reinforced cast-in-place concrete construction. The exterior walls of the holding areas were cast-in-place concrete bearing walls while the interior walls were concrete block masonry concrete filled and reinforced to meet security requirements. The basement, garage and receiving areas incorporated secure sally-port areas for the transfer of residents. Exterior exercise yards were covered with a structural steel and security-level mesh roof grillage.
The building itself was founded on driven, precast concrete piles.
