TORONTO, Nov. 8, 2016 /CNW/ - The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) is proud to announce that the Forensic Services and Coroner's Complex, (FSCC), in Ontario is the Silver Award recipient in the Service Delivery category of the 2016 National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnerships (P3s).
The development of the complex was in direct response to a judicial inquiry into Pediatric Forensic Pathology in Ontario which identified a need for updated and consolidated facilities. The 663 thousand square foot state of the art medico-legal building houses the Office of the Chief Coroner, the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service, the Centre of Forensic Sciences and the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management.
The state of the art lab facilities and court rooms enhance investigations and the quality of evidence ranks the Complex among the best performing and serviced facilities of its type in North America.
The FSCC is a Design Build Finance and Maintain project with a total cost of $ 497 million and a Value for Money of $ 111.5 million. Innovative facilities management approaches added great value to the project as a whole.
The Awards Panel noted that the partners demonstrated innovative approaches to facilities management and that the public-private partnership model on this project motivated a superior level of service.
The CCPPP National Awards will be presented on Monday, November 14th, 2016 at the 24th Annual CCPPP National Conference – INNOVATING OUR FUTURE at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in downtown Toronto.
"On behalf of the project team and all of us at Infrastructure Ontario, we are pleased that the Forensic Sciences and Coroners Complex has been awarded the Silver Award for Service Delivery. This facility is world class, from the unique design to the on-going efficient and effective facilities management services."
