Ohsweken Police Station, Ohsweken
The Ohsweken Police Station started construction in November 2009 and was completed in January 2011. It is a one-storey new build for the headquarters of the Police services on Six Nations Reserve. It is comprised of numerous offices, an interrogation room, a large cafeteria, an evidence room, a conference room, a fitness room, 6 temporary holding cells and an inside person drop off area/car wash.
It was built with an ICF (Insulated Concrete Form) foundation and exterior walls. The roof is made up of curved steel joist with metal deck, insulated Z-grits and roof steel. Interior walls are constructed of mostly light gauge steel studs with some block partitions throughout the building. The exterior of the building is comprised of steel siding and faux brick.
Ohsweken Police Station was build by Melloul-Blamey Construction Inc. I started on the job in May 2010, at that time the foundation was complete, exterior services were 25% complete the building structure was 50% complete. I took on the role of Assistant Site Supervisor overseeing construction on the job with responsibility of layout, quality control and job site safety. I worked on the job until January 2011 when the building was complete and handed over to Six Nations Police.
