Mission Institute - 96 Bed Living Unit
Mission Institution is a medium security federal institution within the Correctional Service of Canada and is located in Mission, British Columbia. Glenco Electric Ltd. was contracted by Bird Construction to complete the new 3,200 square metre, 96-bed two-storey addition.
The new institution is located adjacent to the existing penitentiary, resulting in stringent security requirements that had to be met by all contractors working on the site. Security clearances had to be pre-approved for all workers. A security gate/sally port was also constructed to screen workers, sign in tools and equipment and perform random security searches.
