About the Project
Brampton Courthouse Addition (BCA)
The A. Grenville and William Davis Courthouse in Brampton is the busiest courthouse in the province. To address the current and growing courtroom pressure, a two-phase project to build an addition to the existing courthouse building was approved in 2016-17. Phase 1 of the Brampton Courthouse Addition was completed in spring 2020. Phase 1 involved the construction of a six-floor addition, and fit-out of the basement and floors 1 and 2. The Phase 2 project involved the fit-out of the remaining shelled floors of the addition (3-6), as well as the partial renovation of the existing courthouse and adjacent Land Registry building.
Toronto Region Bail Centre
The Toronto Region Bail Centre (TRBC) project involved the renovation/modification of the existing, leased courthouse building at 2201 Finch Avenue West to accommodate all adult bail operations as well as weekend and statutory holiday (WASH) court bail matters) once the new Ontario Court of Justice - Toronto courthouse opened in 2023. Renovation and retrofit of some spaces were required to accommodate the bail functions, including the renovation of administration space, the addition of in-custody interview cubicles, and other minor modifications to support the new bail centre and provide digital connectivity to other locations. The courthouse now operates as a functional regional bail centre and will is equipped with the technology required to deliver modern, accessible justice services and interconnectivity with the Ontario Court of Justice - Toronto.

Community and Green Benefits

Having a regional bail centre in Toronto Region complements the new Ontario Court of Justice – Toronto and supports the timely hearing of bail matters.
- The Brampton Courthouse Phase 2 and Toronto Region Bail Centre project was being delivered using a DBF model. Key benefits of a DBF model include significant risk transfer to the private sector over the life of the project agreement, greater cost and schedule certainty and greater potential for design and construction efficiencies and innovation.
- Based on precedent project experience, a DBF procurement model typically has delivered a value for money savings in the range of 10% to 15% compared to undertaking the same projects using traditional delivery models.
