New courthouse in Oshawa marks series of firsts By Christopher Guly Scheduled to open this fall, the Durham Consolidated Courthouse will be the Ontario Government’s greenest building when it becomes the first to receive the Canada Green Building Council’s LEED Silver certifi cation for new construction. Situated on a four-acre brownfi eld site and occupying an entire city block in downtown Oshawa, the courthouse roof features Energy Star-compliant refl ective material to lower surface temperature and reduce the amount of air conditioning required during the summer, and the 700 square metres of green roof will decrease energy use and absorb stormwater runoff. There is also a stormwater irrigation system to lower water demand by using rainwater to irrigate lawns and gardens. Water-use reduction is achieved in washrooms through ultra low-fl ow plumbing fi xtures, waterless urinals and dual-fl ush toilets. And a consortium of companies, called Access Justice Durham, will cover the costs of energy that exceed an annual consumption target. The goal is to reduce energy consumption by 42 per cent, compared with similar buildings designed to the Model National Energy Code for Buildings. The $334-million Durham Consolidated Courthouse – which unites Ontario superior and provincial court justice services previously ineight locations throughout the region – is set to achieveLEED Gold certifi cation. But beyond its unique environmentally friendly status, the six-storey, 41,957-squaremetre building sets precedents in other ways. It is the first project delivered using Ontario’s Alternative Financing and Procurement framework, through which Access Justice Durham has the responsibility for building, fi nancing and operating the new courthouse over 30 years on behalf of the client, Ontario’s Ministry of the Attorney General and Infrastructure Ontario. It willalso be the most technologically advanced courthouse in the province.
