This collaboration allows the Cree Nation of Waskaganish to have a new police station in its community. The design of the new Eeyou Eenou Police Force Building in Waskaganish embraces the neighbourhood context and offers employees and officers an abundance of natural light and the warmth of wood finishes.

Figurr is proud to have participated in the design of this institutional project located in the North of Quebec, in Waskaganish. The project consists of an administrative area of 3 closed offices, meeting rooms and an open work area accommodating up to 5 police officers, as well as an incarceration zone of 6 cells, 2 interrogation rooms and a secure garage warehouse. 12 public and 8 secure parking spaces are included in the exterior layout.

The company's institutional identity transpires in its choice of natural materials of which Figurr has taken the care of choosing to favour the integration of the police station within its environment. The well-structured space allows for a coordinated workflow between the variable work schedules of the police personnel. 

In the winter, large amounts of snow cover the yard in a carpet of white that can reach a few meters in height. As for the exterior layout, secure and public parking spaces are available to the community all the while maintaining security and spacing allowing for multiple visitors at once.
