Randy Herman Community Safety Building - City of Maple Ridge
  • Start year: 2005
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: Completed

Opening in May 1990, the building originally served as a Provincial Courthouse and was acquired by the District in 2004. Renovations began in 2005 to accommodate a number of community safety related services such as community policing, the RCMP auxiliary program, District Bylaws Department and the Ridge Meadows Youth Justice Advocacy Program. Over 180 volunteers involved in community safety initiatives are located out of this facility.
The Randy Herman Community Safety Building renovation was designed and constructed under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Commercial Interiors rating system. The building has a number of green building features in its achievement of LEED Silver Certification.
Re-Using Existing Materials - 90% of the doors and frames were re-used; benches and millwork have been re-used or refurbished. The resilient flooring in the RCMP gym is made from recycled tires and other rubbers. 92% of the waste on site was recycled.
Healthy Building Materials - the carpet is made from recycled content and is Green Guard certified. All paints and adhesives have low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC\\\'s). All new doors and millwork are made from wood that does not contain urea formaldehyde.
Water Reduction Strategies - Low flow fixtures were installed in all new changerooms and washrooms. Water closets now use 4.0 litres per flush vs. the standard 6.0 litres per flush. Faucets now use 1.9 litres per minute aerators vs. the standard 8.3 litres per minute.
Energy Reduction Strategies - All T12 ballast and incandescent light fixtures were replaced with more energy efficient T8 or compact fluorescent fixtures. T8 lights use four times less energy than a T12!
