ABOUT THIS PROJECT

The Grassland Vehicle Inspection Station (VIS) and Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) buildings incorporate the vehicle inspection services of the Alberta Solicitor General and Public Security on Highway 63, north of Grassland.

The project features two distinct buildings: an office building (VIS) for the weighing and preliminary visual inspection of vehicles and the CVSA building which facilitates a more intensive inspection of vehicles; features include a cat-walk, lighted trench and brake-tester with a sophisticated extraction system for the ventilation of fumes.

Additional design considerations include: PERSIST building technology (Pressure-Equalized Rain-Screen Insulated Structure Technique) on the VIS building.
