Ontario Courthouse: Leading the Way with Sustainability and Accessibility

We are delighted to announce that our Ontario Court of Justice - Toronto project has attained not one but two gold certifications!

The project has achieved LEED Gold Certification, signifying a significant step in our ongoing commitment to sustainable construction practices. Key features, include:

  • High-efficiency plumbing fixtures
  • Energy-efficient design resulting in a 40% reduction in building energy consumption
  • A rooftop solar panel system, showcasing our dedication to green building

Additionally, with 85% of waste diverted from landfills during construction and the selection of low VOC emission products for the building's interior, we are proud to set a new standard for sustainability infrastructure in the Canadian landscape.

The project has also achieved a Gold Accessibility Certification from the Rick Hansen Foundation. This accomplishment signifies our abilities to deliver innovative solutions that create a barrier-free environment, allowing all visitors and occupants to travel throughout the building with ease.

The 17-storey high-rise courthouse is a first in Ontario, amalgamating six Ontario Court of Justice criminal courthouse locations. It includes 63 courtrooms, a multiple-accused, high-security courtroom, and ten conference/settlement rooms.

Many thanks to the dedicated teams behind both of these accomplishments!
