Forensic Services & Coroner’s Complex Wins Gold P3 Award
Concert Infrastructure is proud to announce that the Forensic Services and Coroner’s Complex (FSCC) in Toronto has won a gold award for “Best Designed Project” at the P3 Awards, organized by P3 Bulletin, a prominent industry publication.
Concert, along with 50% equity partner Carillion Canada, was awarded the contract to design, build, finance and maintain the 663,000-square-foot facility in 2010. Completed in fall 2013, the state-of-the-art LEED Gold project is one of the most advanced forensic laboratories, medicolegal autopsy services and coroner’s court facilities in North America and serves as the headquarters for the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service, the Office of the Chief Coroner and the Centre of Forensic Sciences.
“Working closely with Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Concert was proud to help deliver a piece of modern infrastructure that would serve the community well for years to come,” said Derron Bain, Concert Infrastructure’s Senior Vice President. “This award would certainly not have been possible without the dedication of the outstanding architectural teams from Stantec Architects, MWL Architects, WZMH Architects and SmithGroupJJR.”
The P3 Awards recognize outstanding achievements in public-private partnerships across the Americas. The 2015 awards gala was hosted on October 8, 2015 at the Conrad New York Hotel.
In 2014, the FSCC project was also recognized with an “Award of Merit” in the American Institute of Architects Justice Facility Review which documents best practices in planning and design for justice architecture.
