The new Barrie Simcoe Emergency Services Campus offers cost-effective, modern facilities for the Barrie Police Service, Simcoe County Paramedic Services and Barrie Fire and Emergency Service, and the communities that they serve. Phase 1, scheduled to be complete in early 2020, provides a new police headquarters, a communications dispatch, and an emergency hub with ambulance storage, mobile command unit, support areas and staff/administrative training spaces.
The project is being delivered through an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) method, one of the first in public safety in Ontario. Working within a unified team of project stakeholders, general contractors and constructors, AECOM led the functional planning and participated in the conceptual architecture with Lett Architects. AECOM is also serving as the Architect of Record and the Engineer of Record for mechanical, electrical and civil engineering services, and provided landscape architecture services.
