1.0    CORRECTIONS PUBLIC SAFETY AND POLICING -
       MISSION

 .1    The Corrections, Public Safety and Policing (CPSP) mission seeks the
       safety and security of individuals in correctional facilities and
       communities as a key outcome. This is achieved through the provision of
       necessary controls to protect the public and helping offenders become
       productive citizens through rehabilitation and community reintegration.
       This requires a physical environment that allows (CPSP) to meet the
       legal, moral and ethical responsibilities imposed by our criminal justice
       system.

 .2    As part of the Criminal Justice System, CPSP has a duty and
       responsibility to the public to manage offenders guided by the principles
       of:

       •   Use of the least restrictive measures
       •   Duty to act fairly
       •   Respect for the dignity and rights of offenders

 .3   CPSP has a responsibility to comply with the following major legislative
      requirements:

               The Correctional Services Act;
               The Summary Offences Procedure Act;
               Corrections and Conditional Release Act (Canada);
               The Criminal Code of Canada;
               Prison and Reformatories Act (Canada);
               The Occupational Health and Safety Act; and
               The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

 .4   The Criminal Code of Canada and The Correctional Services Act require
      the province to hold persons remanded in custody, and to hold offenders
      receiving sentences less than two years. This responsibility for the
      humane care, custody and control of these citizens includes providing
      offenders with a range of rehabilitation and reintegration programs that
      will assist in reducing the level of risk such persons may present while in
      custody and on release. Offenders housed must be held in a safe and
      secure environment while they await trial. At the same time, CPSP is
      committed to meeting their health care needs; providing education and
      training, work activities, religious and cultural programs, access to
      families and to legal counsel.

       interested parties:

       •   RPCC Elder;
       •   Saskatchewan Government Employees Union (SGEU) program and
           management staff representatives;
       •   Commission on First Nations and Métis Peoples and Justice Reform;
           and
       •   Provincial Ombudsman.

  .2   Upon approval to proceed with the Remand Centre at the Saskatoon
       Provincial Correctional Centre (SPCC), the following stakeholders will
       be contacted by CPSP to provide input through the Project Management
       team:

       •   Inmate Committee representatives at SPCC;
       •   Inmate Spiritual Brotherhood at SPCC;
       •   Staff representatives at SPCC;
       •   Provincial Court Judges;
       •   John Howard Society;
       •   Crown Prosecutors;
       •   Saskatchewan Coalition Against Racism;
       •   Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations;
       •   Provincial Ombudsman;
       •   Commission on First Nations and Métis Peoples and Justice Reform;
       •   Dr. Jeffrey Pfeifer, who heads up the Canadian Institute for Peace,

3.0    KEY STAKEHOLDER ASSESSMENT

 .2    Diverse stakeholders will generally take supportive positions with respect
       to a new facility, recognizing the need for improvements and action:

       SGEU members will approve a better, safer working environment
       although some may question if a newer and more efficient facility will
       mean eventual job losses or significant job changes. SGEU members
       from SPCC will be requesting participation in the design planning
       process.

       Aboriginal people and their representatives will welcome improvements
       to help meet the special needs and program requirements of their people.
       Building a new correctional centre provides an opportunity for
       consultation and involvement of Aboriginal organizations to ensure an
       environment that is more culturally relevant to Aboriginal offenders.

       Other advocates such as the Provincial Ombudsman, John Howard
       Society, and Elizabeth Fry Society will support replacement, as will
       public health, safety and fire officials.

       The Justice system will be supportive of an environment that is modern
       and philosophically attuned to successful, contemporary Corrections
       services and programs, including the Commission on First Nations and
       Métis Peoples and Justice Reform, and police services.

       Some participation should be expected in the form of strategic meetings,
       design presentations and interviews with the stake holders to ensure their
       support and obtain any value-added ideas. Saskatchewan Ministry of
       Government Services (GS) and CPSP will provide access to a small
       group of key stakeholders involved directly to the design team who will
       be responsible for the operations and maintenance of the entire facility at
       turn over.

       Generation three, direct supervision model has been accepted and
       directed for RPCC and SPCC.


4.0    OWNERSHIP AND OPERATIONS
  .1   The Saskatoon Provincial Correctional Centre (SPCC) is owned by the
       Province of Saskatchewan with GS representing the Province as the
       landlord of the facility. Currently,CPSP personnel are responsible for
       the delivery of the program and facility operation and maintenance.

 .2       CPSP performs the maintenance through the direction of a maintenance
          manager who is responsible for all operating parameters within the
          SPCC. This includes the day-to-day operations including administration
          duties, assigning the reactive/preventative maintenance work, scheduling
          the outside maintenance, initiating the five year capital maintenance
          planning, environmental concerns, OH&S issues and human resource
          issues. CPSP employs unionized members who perform a variety of
          maintenance from electrical, mechanical, painting, outside maintenance
          and security (locks).

          Plans are underway to have GS take over the aforementioned duties.

     .3   SPCC uses the maintenance program as a rehabilitative tool with the
          utilization of inmates in assisting the maintenance personnel perform the
          various duties. This applies to both the work that is completed inside and
          outside of the facility. The new work will be independent of these
          processes.

 .4       The new facility will fall under the existing operating agreement between
          GS and CPSP.


5.0       NEW FACILITY
.1        The new facility will be situated on the existing site utilizing any existing
          infrastructure possible. Relocation or demolition of existing program
          building(s) infringing on the proposed location is not expected.

.2        The existing correctional facility will stay fully operational through the
          design and construction of the new facility. Security, deliveries, site
          service interruptions and interruption of program operation shall be
          addressed.

.3        The new facility shall be fully compatible with the continued operation of
          the remaining facility which will not be replaced at this time.

 .4       The Saskatchewan Ministry of Government Services (GS) is committed to an ongoing
          process of reducing the impact of our buildings on the environment and will build and
          operate sustainable, high performance buildings. Facilities will be designed and
          constructed using an integrated design process and will follow the LEED™
          (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) rating system. This will include
          submission to the Canadian Green Building Council for review. The target for this
          project will be LEED Silver. A high level of involvement in the integrated design
          process is required from all parties.

 6.0 SYNOPSIS OF THE PROJECT
          The profile of offenders has changed over time. There are more violent,
          higher-risk people who are increasingly involved in gang and drug-
          related activity. Offenders are also in need of appropriate physical and
          psychological health care facilities.

          The recommended replacement scenario will best meet the increasing
          demands for improvements as expressed by key stakeholders such as the
          Commission on First Nations and Métis Peoples and Justice Reform and
          the Provincial Ombudsman, inmates and their representatives and
          families. High crime rates and increasing public concerns about safety
          and security will be addressed.

          This project will provide for the following:

          •      Build 48 high-security cells
          •      Build 12 medical cells
          •      Build 12 medium-security cells
          •      Build 144 remand cells (includes a visitor component)
                 Total cells – 216
          •      Build inmate admission/discharge plus vehicle sally-port access
          •      Build health care unit
          •      Build a new building for administration use
          •      Build a new food services/laundry/institutional facility
          •      Build an Aboriginal room
          •      Build a sweat lodge.


7.0       PROJECT COST
          The total budget for the project is $87 million


8.0       DESCRIPTION OF NEW FACILITY
     .1   This project will build a total of 216 cells, including a new 144-cell
          remand unit on the existing site. The unit includes a visiting area
          component and an admission/discharge area with sally-port access. Also,

       units will house 48 high-security cells, 12 medium-security cells, 12
       medical cells and a health care outpatient clinic. The proposed total gross
       building area is approximately 14,000 sq. m. The new facility will not
       be linked to the existing facility components which will remain in
       service.

  .2   An administration/admissions and discharge building will be built in
       close proximity to the new 144-cell remand unit. Alternate locations will
       be considered in the design phase as appropriate.

  .3   This scenario facilitates the option to minimize staffing levels assigned to
       units where one Corrections worker on each unit conducts security and
       case management functions in a much more dynamic setting. The new
       unit is to allow for direct line of sight and more interactive opportunities
       with offenders.

               shall advise the Client of any change in the general level of construction industry
               prices between the date of submission of the Construction Documents to the

       CAD GUIDELINES FOR CONSULTANTS


1. Preliminary

  Before commencement of work, the Consultant is advised to become familiar with Government
  Services standards and the Cad Check Program. The Consultant is encouraged to request a
  meeting with a Government Services Inventory Officer to clarify any points that may be in
  question. During the project, a Facilities Management Technician is available to answer any
  questions regarding submissions or compliance issues. The Government Services CAD Layering
  Standards are included with the ChkCad_V5-0.fas checker utility. Upon granting of access this
  may be downloaded from ftp://spmcftp1.spm.gov.sk.ca/ Please refer to the end of Schedule B for
  contact information to obtain the current username and password.


2. Reference Material

  Drawings obtained from Government Services are provided as reference material only since such
  material may pre-date Government Services’s current compliance standards. Consultants that
  incorporate these materials must ensure that the finished submissions are compliant.


3. CAD Drawings and File Format

  In addition to the hardcopy requirements specified by article 6.1.3, drawings must also be
                                                               ™
  submitted in electronic format and be of revision “AutoCAD™ Revision 14” or later, “.DWG”.
  This comprises As Built as well as Construction drawings. Consultants using other than
             ™
  AutoCAD™ software are responsible for submission of drawings in this format. DXF, DWF or
  PDF files will not be accepted.
  Drawings converted from other software must be completely compliant with at least “AutoCAD™  ™
  Revision 14” or later “DWG” format. Conversions of such drawings are the responsibility of the
  Consultant. Embedded layers required by other software that cannot be re-named by AutoCAD™    ™
  will not be accepted.

5. Drawing Metrics

   Drawings must not contain macros, reactors or OLE content such as spreadsheets.
   Each drawing must be contained in its own file.
   The filename must be prefixed by the drawing name or be the same as the drawing number.
   Drawing units must be in millimetres.
   All drawing content other than title blocks and headers must reside in model space.
   All content must be drawn at 1 to 1 in millimetres (do not draw to scale). Scaled representation
   can be delivered by scaling view-ports in paper space.
   Dimensions must reside in model space for drawings created in AutoCad earlier than AutoCad
   2004 file format. This also applies to drawings created with AutoCad 2004 that are to be saved
   back to an earlier format.
   PaperSpace must contain only Title blocks, Headers, and View-ports.
   The use of “Color dependent plot style” files (.ctb) is preferred. Named plot style (.stb) files will be
   accepted subject to review and approval, and must be approved prior to the commencement of
   any drawing activities.
   For AutoCad2000 drawings and later, plot styles that are not generic must accompany drawings.
   Before submission the plot style should be renamed to the Government Services job number. e.g.
   BAS97000.ctb


5.1 Layers

   When the drawing has been completed Layer “0” Zero must be free of all entities.
   All layers must comply with the Government Services’s Layering Guidelines. It is no longer
   necessary to purchase the NCS or the AIA guidelines. Government Services’s Layering Standards
   are packaged with the CadCheck program that is available from the Inventory Unit’s ftp site,
   ftp://SPMftp1.SPM.gov.sk.ca/ Please refer to the end of Schedule B for contact information to

    In such cases where a layer name has not been provided for, the Consultant may submit in writing
    or email to Government Services’s Inventory Unit, a request for approval to use a layer name that
    he wishes to create. The structure of such layer names must conform to the existing format.


5.2 Blocks

    This section applies to blocks used in the drawing of architectural elements.
    All blocks must be created on layer 0.
    All blocks must be inserted on a compliant layer described in the above Layer section.
    Blocks and Block Entity Colors must be “ByLayer” or “ByBlock”.
    Blocks and Block Entity Linetypes must be “ByLayer” or “ByBlock”.
    Blocks and Block Entity Lineweights must be “ByLayer” or “ByBlock”.
    Entities may carry combinations of the above.
    Non compliant blocks that are Title Blocks and Headers will be accepted if they reside in Paper
    Space.
    Symbol and Block libraries used to represent electrical or mechanical entities are exempt from
    these requirements provided that they reside in electrical or mechanical drawings.


5.3 Text

    The Consultant may use non native AutoCad font styles as desired while implementing at least one
    of the following requirements:
    1) In cases where such fonts have not been shipped with AutoCad, the Consultant is responsible to
    provide Government Services with a legal copy of those font or shape files.
    2) Where fonts can be submitted with a native AutoCad font or shape file the Consultant will
    recommend a replacement provided that it does not detract from the presentation.


5.4 External References (Xrefs)

    The use of external reference base drawings is encouraged, and is advisable when working on
    multi-discipline projects. When xrefs are used, the reference files must be included with drawing
    submission and are subject to the same compliance standards. If those files are being provided by
    other Consultant(s), they also must be submitted to Government Services before any compliance
    approval can be granted. Xrefs other than templates used as headers and title blocks, must reside
    in model space.
    File names must not change once the initial submission to Government Services has been made. If
    a file name change is required, the Consultant(s) must advise Government Services in writing.
    The documentation must include the original and new file names. Drawings must be accompanied
    by a “.doc”, “.xls” or “.txt” file indicating each main drawing name and which files it is
    referencing externally.
    Multiple drawings may xref an external base drawing.
    A drawing may reference several external drawings.
    External drawings must be referenced at 1:1.
    Drawings using xrefs must be accompanied by documentation indicating the insertion points for
    those xrefs.

  Xrefs must not be bound or inserted as blocks.
  Before submission, drawings must be checked and not contain circular references.


6. Drawing Compliance Checks

  The Consultant is required to provide Government Services with drawings in “AutoCAD™   ™
  Revision 14” or later format for review of adherence to these guidelines. Government Services
  will review the drawing(s) and approve them or provide comments for the Consultant to act on in
  order to obtain approval.

  When drawings are submitted to Government Services unless for preliminary testing they are
  assumed to be as-builts finished and complete. If they are found to be incomplete or incorrect, the
  Consultant is responsible to correct the deficiencies, expediently.

  Submission for payment must include an electronic set of drawing files reflecting the current stage
  of the project.

  The project must be completed within the time agreed to in the contract. If an extension is
  necessary, the Consultant is responsible to seek written approval from Government Services’s
  project Manager.

  As addressed in the main contract body, Government Services reserves the right to withhold
  monies should the Consultant fail to complete the contract which includes the delivery of CAD
  compliant as-built drawings.
