This museum is situated at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Depot, the national training centre, in Regina, Saskatchewan. It houses a multimedia theatre, historical and contemporary exhibits, and an outdoor exhibit area.

The primary challenges were to create an iconic building representing the important history of the RCMP in the development of Canada, and to respond to the site location at the RCMP Academy in Regina within the prairie landscape. As well the building is to serve as a repository of history and will act as an educational facility to all visitors and new trainees to the force.

The RCMP Heritage Centre represents the past of the RCMP as an object emerging from the archetypical prairie landscape and subtle design cues have been derived from the original forts that dotted the landscape. It also represents the present of the RCMP through the relationship with the site and the creation of an entry sequence through a ceremonial wall that defines the Academy entrance. And, it represents the future as an iconic, modern, and signature architectural expression of the RCMP.
