Kelowna sets shortlist of potential builders of new cop shop

City Hall has selected three companies to vie for the contract to build its new $48 million police services building.

The City of Kelowna has narrowed the number of potential builders of its planned new $48 million police building to a shortlist of three.

The trio will compete for the design-build contract to complete all project work for the police services building, slated for the city-owned land at the corner of Clement Avenue and Richter Street.

The city’s evaluation team, which consisted of three city staff members and two consultants, received a total of 10 responses to the request for qualifications which was issued in February.

After scoring the the proposals and checking references, the three proponents shortlisted were:

PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc.

Bird Design-Build Construction Inc.

Bouygues Building Canada

The next steps in the process will see each proponent obtain the necessary RCMP security clearances and then receive the performance requirements to develop proposals to design and build the facility.

Selection of the final proposal is scheduled for the end of this yea r and construction is slated to begin in 2015.

The new building is expected to open in late 2017 and will replace the aging and cramped current RCMP detachment on Doyle Avenue across from City Hall.
