Slave Lake Government Centre and Library

Slave Lake, AB

A one-year-old building that was destroyed by a wildfire was given new life. The new building has streamlined the delivery of public services in Slave Lake, providing a central place where people can meet, interact, and conduct daily business all in one place.

The new Government Centre and Library for the Town of Slave Lake was designed & built to consolidate a number of government services, in outdated facilities, that were distributed through the community. The new building includes two courtrooms, holding cells, a top-of-the-line security system, public library, and a meeting space. Construction was comprised of Douglas Fir Glulam columns and beams to support a wood roof decking, with wood-framed exterior walls. The project also made very good use of reused materials, with much of the wood coming from the deconstruction of a church in Edmonton.
