RFQ issued for Brampton, Ont. courthouse and Toronto bail centre renovation project
By On-Site StaffConstruction
Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of the Attorney General have issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) for a project that involves renovating both a bail centre in Toronto and a courthouse in nearby Brampton, Ont.
The province launched the search for construction consortium to take on the multifaceted design, build and finance project earlier this month.
In Brampton, the winning bidder will need to complete the second phase of a two-stage addition to the A. Grenville and William Davis Courthouse. Fitting out four floors covering approximately 97,000 sq. ft., renovating an additional 17,000 sq. ft. of the building and partial renovations to an adjacent Land Registry building are among the primary tasks. The province said the work aims to relieve courtroom pressure at the facility, which is the busiest courthouse in Ontario.
Meanwhile, the scope of work at Toronto Region Bail Centre at 2201 Finch Avenue West covers approximately 30,400 sq. ft. The facility is being designed to accommodate all adult bail operations once the new Toronto courthouse opens in 2022.
The province plans to release a shortlist of build teams this spring after reviewing submissions from the RFQ stage.
