Ten­ders re­quested for po­lice HQ ren­o­va­tions

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON - BY LAURA JEAN GRANT lj­grant@cb­post.com

A re­quest for ten­ders has gone out for the $1.2-mil­lion ren­o­va­tion of Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Po­lice head­quar­ters on Grand Lake Road.

The ten­der call was is­sued by the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity Tues­day and the clos­ing date for ten­der of­fers is Aug. 13 at 2 p.m.

In the ten­der doc­u­ment, the CBRM noted it hoped to award the con­tract as soon as pos­si­ble af­ter the clos­ing date.

“(The work) will hope­fully get un­der­way in late Au­gust and it will prob­a­bly end up be­ing an eight- to 10-week con­struc­tion sched­ule,” said Bill Mur­phy, man­ager of build­ing ser­vices with the CBRM. “So hope­fully, it’ll be con­cluded by around the end of Novem­ber.”

The pro­posed ren­o­va­tion work to the in­te­rior of the build­ing con­sists of elec­tri­cal and me­chan­i­cal up­grades and al­ter­ations, new ar­chi­tec­tural works, doors, spe­cialty fit­tings and fin­ishes, as well as work to in­te­rior of­fices and locker rooms, in­clud­ing new par­ti­tions, doors, frames and hard­ware, floor­ing, ceil­ings, and mill­work.

Ear­lier this year, CBRM coun­cil voted to ap­prove the $1.2-mil­lion ren­o­va­tion, with Chief Peter McIsaac say­ing the build­ing re­quired an over­haul to meet the force’s needs over the next decade.

Changes to be made dur­ing the ren­o­va­tions in­clude mov­ing the pa­trol unit to the main floor and closer to the record sec­tion and K-9 unit, cre­at­ing proper brief­ing and in­ter­view rooms, and im­prov­ing the ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem.
