Kleinfeldt Mychajlowycz and Montgomery Sisam Architects in joint venture have been chosen as the planning, design and compliance team responsible for preparing key documents including output specifications and preliminary design documents that will form the guidelines and performance requirements for the successful building team’s proposals for both the Toronto West Courthouse and the Quinte Consolidated Courthouse.
The Toronto West Courthouse will be a new courthouse facility located near the intersection of Bloor Street West, Dundas Street West and Kipling Avenue. The new courthouse will provide services to the west end of Toronto and include more than 20 courtrooms, including two major crime courts, and a commitment by the government to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standard which recognizes buildings with reduced environmental impacts.
The new Quinte Consolidated Courthouse will consolidate existing courthouse facilities into one new location. Currently, the region’s Ontario Court of Justice and Superior Court of Justice operate from three locations in Belleville and one in Trenton. The Quinte Consolidated Courthouse will be located in Belleville at 194 Coleman Street, near City Hall and include an increased number of courtrooms; better security; easier access for people with disabilities; and a commitment to meet LEED Silver standard.
