The Levis Police Department must provide the public with Level II protection services, as required by Ministère de la Sécurité publique, but was unable to accommodate the staff required to do so. It operated out of two different stations, one at 6900 boulevard Guillaume-Couture (patrolling) and the other at 1035 chemin du Sault (headquarters, administration, operations support and investigations). Due to the limited size of the premises, major upgrades could not be made to existing buildings. A single station adapted to the required level of service was required to centralize police operations.

To a certain extent, the Levis municipal court serves the same clientele as the police department. It implements the decisions rendered by the judges and requires police to be present when people in custody testify, are transported or appear before the court. For these reasons, the City wished to accommodate the municipal court and legal affairs in the same building.

TRINORD’s role

Project review and identification of optimization options: The mandate was to advise the City of Levis in reviewing the project basics with respect to scope and costs, based on an assessment of the needs of the various departments concerned (3). Based on data from the 2016 functional and technical program and meetings with various stakeholders, the specific objective was to identify ways of optimizing the project in order to align the budget with the municipal vision and requirements. As part of the mandate, we completely reviewed the site plans, the restraint plans for each level and the surface area distribution chart in order to submit a viable real estate solution aligned with the initial objectives.

Main challenges and proposed solutions:

  • Target project size versus available budget: optimization required while maintaining the support of project participants.
  • Proposed project governance structure.
  • Complete revision of functional relationships between the sectors and rooms concerned (restraint, surface area chart, etc.).

Project contributors:

  • General management
  • Legal Affairs Department
  • Police Department
  • Engineering Department
