BELLEVILLE - The Quinte Consolidated Courthouse moves forward with the selection of Kleinfeldt Mychajlowycz and Montgomery Sisam Architects in Joint Venture 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 proposal.  

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. 

Highlights of the Quinte Consolidated Courthouse include: 

  • an increased number of courtrooms 
  • better security  
  • easier access for people with disabilities 
  • a commitment by the government to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standard, which recognizes buildings with reduced environmental impacts .

A request for qualifications to select a team to design, build, finance and maintain the new facility was issued in August 2009.  The Quinte Consolidated Courthouse project is proceeding under Infrastructure Ontario's Design Build Finance Maintain model.  This model transfers to the private sector the appropriate risks associated with the design, construction and financing of complex infrastructure projects.

Infrastructure Ontario will work with the Ministry of the Attorney General to develop the new courthouse.  Infrastructure Ontario is a Crown corporation dedicated to managing some of the province's larger and more complex infrastructure renewal projects - ensuring they are built on time and on budget.
