More Information

The Provincial Remand Centre, 141 Kennedy Street, was designed by √Čtienne Gaboury. The building's angular design gives it a unique quality. The building is predominantly made of two exterior materials: the base is made of Tyndall stone while the tower is made of a blue tinted reflective glass.

The Provincial Remand Centre houses government offices, holding areas and an exercise yard. The building's interior is mostly made of concrete while the exterior exercise yard is constructed of stone and a structural steel, security-level mesh roof grillage.
