Red Deer Justice Centre expected to be complete in late 2023

The Red Deer Justice Centre is still on track to be complete this year, according to Alberta’s Ministry of Infrastructure.

The $207-million project is expected to be complete in “late 2023,” said a statement issued by the office of Alberta’s Minister of Infrastructure Nathan Neudorf.

“The Red Deer Justice Centre includes eight floors above ground and two floors below ground level,” said the statement issued to The Advocate on Friday evening.

“The building is currently enclosed and exterior cladding is being installed. Additionally, interior mechanical and electrical work is well underway, with Interior finishes (including drywall and ceilings) also currently underway.

“Following construction completion, the centre’s interior space will be prepared for occupancy with installation of furniture and fine tuning of all building systems. The centre’s public opening date will be determined by Justice.”

The 312,000-square-foot building is located just south of the downtown branch of the Red Deer Public Library. Alberta Infrastructure serves as the developer, Clark Builders is the contractor and Group 2 Architecture is the project’s architect.

In a previous statement, the provincial government noted the project has supported more than 1,100 jobs in construction and trades. Construction on the project began in 2020.
