Concert Infrastructure’s advanced medico-legal facility, the Forensic Services and Coroner’s Complex in Ontario, has won the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnership’s Silver Award for Service Delivery in the 2016 National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnerships, held November 14, 2016.
The Canadian Council National Awards for Public-Private Partnerships were established in 1998 to honour governments and/or public institutions and their private sector partners who have demonstrated excellence and innovation in the establishment of public-private partnerships.
“Concert Infrastructure is proud to receive this recognition from the CCPPP,” says Derron Bain, Concert Infrastructure’s Senior Vice President. “Today the Complex is among the best performing and serviced facilities of its type in North America and is evidence of the value, efficiency and effectiveness of the public private partnership model during a project’s operation phase.”
Completed in 2013, the complex was developed in response to a judicial inquiry into Pediatric Forensic Pathology in Ontario which identified the need for updated and consolidated facilities. 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 today occupies the 663,000 square foot facility.
In June 2016, Concert acquired its partner Carillion plc's 50% interest in the FSCC project and now wholly owns the project company. As part of the acquisition, Concert has assumed sole responsibility for the management of the project with Carillion Canada remaining the day-to-day facilities management service provider.
