Surrey Pre-Trial Services Centre Expansion Project

Project highlights


Surrey, BC


C$133 million

In operations since 2013, the 140,000 square foot Surrey Pre-Trial Services Centre Expansion Project (SPSCE) doubles the facility’s capacity by delivering 216 new high-security inmate cells, organized within six living units.

The project also involved a significant renovation and updates to the existing 149 cells, inmate living unit supervision and control systems, food services, programming, staff services, administration and admissions/discharge, and visiting areas. The new addition achieved LEED® Gold certification.


The SPSCE project received the Gold Award, Project Financing, from the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships in 2011. Forum sold its interest in the project in 2016, but maintains its role as the asset manager on behalf of an institutional owner.
