National department Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) has announced plans to build a new domestic justice complex in Old Montréal, Quebec. 

It will be constructed on 2,025m² site, which was purchased by PSPC from the City of Montréal for approximately C$8.5m ($6.23m), including taxes, in 2020. 

The site is situated on a block bounded by Notre-Dame Street West, Place d’Armes, Saint-Jacques Street, and Saint-Laurent Boulevard. 

The complex will comprise a two-storey entrance hall, along with ground-floor and basement levels on the Notre-Dame Street side, serving as the main facade.  

On the Saint-Jacques Street side, it will include an eight-storey tower, along with ground-floor and basement levels. 

For the entrance hall, granite stone cladding will be employed while the tower will be clad in high-quality concrete.

The courts to be housed at the complex are the Federal Court of Appeal, the Federal Court, the Court Martial Appeal Court of Canada, and the Tax Court of Canada, along with the Courts Administration Service.

These courts are currently housed in a leased building that is not owned by the Government of Canada. 

The latest complex is expected to start accommodating the courts in 2027. 

The new building will adhere to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold and WELL Silver standards. 

Canadian Public Services and Procurement Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said: “With modern, secure and accessible facilities, this new justice complex will improve access to justice for Canadians and preserve judicial independence.  

“Meeting high environmental standards, this project demonstrates the importance our government places on our workers.” 

PSPC awarded two major contracts for the project through competitive tender processes. 

The Architecture49 and Perkins+Will Canada consortium secured a contract worth approximately C$13.6m for architectural and engineering services. 

This includes design, preparation of plans and specifications, and construction supervision services. 

Another contract, valued at around C$143m, was awarded to Pomerleau for construction management.
