Accommodating youth in detention and/or serving secure custody sentences, the Roy McMurtry Youth Centre project is a build-finance project constructed for Infrastructure Ontario as agent for the province of Ontario. The 192-bed facility is divided into six residential-style cottage units. Other features include a new administrative facility, two renovated buildings used as an education centre and kitchen/workshop, and a chapel.
The facility is designed and constructed to target LEED Silver certification. A major objective was to preserve as many of the existing trees as possible on-site to provide screening for the facility.
