TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Council for Public-Private
Partnerships (CCPPP) congratulates the Government of Ontario on the
official opening of the state-of-the-art Forensic Services and
Coroner's Complex to house the Office of the Chief Coroner, the Ontario Forensic
Pathology Service and the Centre of Forensic Sciences.
Infrastructure Ontario managed the project's procurement on behalf of
the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, who
is partnering with Carillion Secure Solutions, the private consortium
that will design, build, finance and maintain the new,
49,000-square-metre building under a 30-year agreement.
Using Ontario's Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) approach,
there will be an estimated $111.5 million (13.5 per cent) cost savings
compared to traditional public sector infrastructure delivery. The
complex has been built and will be maintained to Leadership in Energy
and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification. This will ensure
that the facilities minimize the environmental impact, operate at peak
efficiency and provide vital services to Ontario communities for
decades to come.
This project is one of over 200 across Canada using the public-private
partnership approach to strengthen the economy, protect taxpayers and
deliver innovative solutions to complex public needs.
