Robertson Bright Inc. (RBI) has been pleased to be an active participant in the design and construction of the new Waterloo Region Consolidated Courthouse (WRCC) in Kitchener, Ontario. This project was undertaken through the DBFM (Design Build Finance Maintain) model as directed by the Government of Ontario’s Infrastructure Ontario (IO) program as a part of their growing P3 (Private Public Partnership) provincial infrastructure project delivery mandate.
The WRCC has been designed and built to meet the latest standards of the Ministry of the Attorney General and with thirty courtrooms it will also be one of the largest courthouses in Ontario. Once fully operational, it will be consolidating the Superior Court of Justice and Ontario Court of Justice that are currently operating in three locations across the Waterloo Region. This facility is being constructed to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver as part of an intentionally reduced carbon footprint. With an expected completion in early 2013 this project is now in its final stages of testing and commissioning.
