The concept for this campus is to bring together the Barrie Police Service, Barrie Fire and Emergency Service, and Simcoe County Paramedic Service under one roof using Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). By sharing training and staff amenities, each partner will have access to additional and improved facilities than would be feasible or affordable in separate buildings.
The prime objective was to build a fully integrated and multifaceted campus incorporating the following three major components:
- Barrie Police Headquarters – to replace the existing outgrown Barrie Police building.
- Barrie Fire and Emergency Service Training Facility – multidisciplinary fire and emergency service training facility.
- County of Simcoe Paramedic Service – paramedic operational hub with ambulance storage, mobile command unit, support areas, and staff/administrative spaces.
All facilities were planned to meet 25-year space projections. The campus layout and ultimate building design will allow for future growth and expansion.
The team was able to reduce the overall project budget by $20,000,000.Back to projects
