Roy McMurtry Youth Centre

posted Feb 25, 2015, 8:50 AM by Heather Dalby
The Roy McMurtry Youth Centre in Brampton is an innovative detention facility designed to accommodate youth in detention and those serving secure custody sentences.  This project was the first building designed to meet LEED Gold/Silver Certification by the Province of Ontario, and the first Campus project to be submitted to the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) for LEED accreditation. The facility consists of a 192-bed, campus-style complex.  When the facility opened in 2009, there were complaints of poor acoustics.  VCL was retained in 2010 to provide acoustical engineering services for the acoustical renovation.  The scope of work included site measurements, analysis, mitigation plan, tender write-up, selection of contractor, shop drawing reviews, product testing and submission and construction reviews.
