Figurr, in collaboration with the Cree Nation Government, designed and built a police station in Waskaganish with the objective of creating a structure with an attractive, welcoming exterior, whose primary focus is on community service and security.

The interior of the police station has been designed in such a way that clearly demarcates the administrative area from the incarceration area and this is also reflected in the treatment of the opposing spaces as well as the choice of their outer appearance.

On one side is the administrative space, with west-facing windows, that take full advantage of the natural light. The space is comprised of various offices, rooms, and an open work area, with direct access to the outside. The well-structured nature of the space allows for a harmonized workflow, that takes into account the flexible hours of the police force.

The incarceration area is made up of six cells, two interrogation rooms, a videoconference room, and a secure garage that overlooks outside.

A service and maintenance area has also been set up in an annexed building. Lastly, the meticulous placement of the roof slopes ensures the safety of visitors against falling ice, and secure public parking, accessible to the community, completes the exterior of the building.
