OPP Facilities Modernization Project
Morrison Hershfield OPP Facilities Modernization Project
This Innovative AFP project is the Province of Ontario’s first multi-site Design-Build Finance and Maintain project in social infrastructure.  This delivery model was utilized for new police facilities in sixteen communities across the province by the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services and Infrastructure Ontario.

The project includes the construction of new detachments, regional headquarters and forensic identification units to better support the demands of Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) operations across Ontario.  The expected construction cost is between $100M to $150M.  The new facilities are to be low to mid-rise structures, developed as free standing centers with a combination of brick and metal cladding systems.  The designs incorporate CPTED (Crime Prevention through Environmental Design.) 

Morrison Hershfield provides the following services:

  • Project management of Planning, Design and Compliance (PDC) Consultant acting as lead of the PDC team
  • Multidisciplinary design including civil, structure, mechanical, electrical, LEED®, code/life safety and environmental services for all building types
  • Meetings with Infrastructure Ontario, OPP and Ministry stakeholders to define project requirements
  • Developing indicative design and project specific output specifications
  • Coordinating with legal and facilities maintenance consultants
  • Supporting the preparation of request for proposal documentation for DBFM proponent bids
  • Acting as compliance advisor in review of proponent proposals
  • Follow-up reviews of design development by short-listed proponent bidders

We add value through our thorough understanding of AFP process, risk transfers, and critical DBFM criteria as it applied to this first multi-site DBFM project in Ontario.  Project management skills drive the project delivery process as we interface with multiple stakeholders impacting various sites.  Integrated, multi-disciplinary services are provided for coordinated and timely technical solutions and compliance assessments.  We are knowledgeable of critical facilities and robust infrastructure for police facilities.
