Quinte Consolidated Courthouse project attracts industry interest

BELLEVILLE, ON, April 13 /CNW/ - Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of the Attorney General announced today the three companies that have been short-listed to design, build, finance and maintain the Quinte Consolidated Courthouse.

The new facility, to be located in Belleville, Ontario, at Coleman and Bridge Streets, will improve access to courthouse services by consolidating the Superior Court of Justice and Ontario Court of Justice, which are currently operating in three locations in Belleville and one in Trenton. Consolidating local courthouses into a single location will provide a new, modern and accessible courthouse to the community. As well, it will reduce costs and provide a more effective use of resources.
