The APSLETC integrates building and landscape design into a campus that meets the training needs of law enforcement agencies across North America. The design provides classroom, indoor simulations, combat, and advanced driving skills training facilities.
|The APSLETC facility occupies over one-half square mile (1.4 square kilometers) and includes indoor and outdoor training facilities, as well as a residence hall and classrooms.|
The APSLETC will cover approximately 340 acres (123 hectares) of land and will comprise a residential building, simulation labs, classrooms, a mock courtroom, a mock processing unit. Other training features include indoor urban streetscape, urban village, and rural farm scenarios; high and low speed vehicle test pads; and a forest scenario.
The facility will also have 25- and 50-meter (82- and 164-foot) indoor shooting ranges and a 300-meter (1,000-foot) outdoor shooting range.
A design-build proposal for the APSLETC from Bird Design-Build Construction Inc. (Bird) and Stantec Architecture Ltd. was selected by Alberta Infrastructure and the province's Solicitor General in July 2012.
