Pomerleau team wins $82.3M contract for Brampton Courthouse, Toronto bail centre projects
A construction team headed by Pomerleau Inc. has been awarded the contract for two Toronto area renovation and fit-out projects tied to the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General.
Infrastructure Ontario (IO) said June 1 it has finalized a deal with the Trans/FORM consortium to design, build and finance the Brampton Courthouse Addition Phase 2 and the Toronto Region Bail Centre projects. The Crown agency had narrowed the field of bidders to two last summer, issuing a request for proposals in August.
Work on a six-storey addition to the A. Grenville and William Davis Courthouse in Brampton started in 2017. Construction on Phase 1 wrapped up last year, clearing the way for the second stage, which consists of fitting out three of the new floors, partial renovations to the original courthouse and renovations to the adjacent Land Registry building. The total scope of work runs across 130,000 sq. ft.
In Toronto, the team will be responsible for retrofitting a soon-to-close courthouse facility at 2201 Finch Avenue West. The space, roughly 30,400 sq. ft., will be reconfigured to serve as a new bail centre.
IO and the Ministry of the Attorney General said the deal with the Trans-FORM team is worth $82.3 million, though that figure does not reflect complete project costs.
Construction officially commenced June 1.
