The Barrie Police Service will start to move into the Barrie Simcoe Emergency Services Campus on Jan. 20 “as planned” according to an update memo to city council.
“The BSESC project team confirms that the relocation of Barrie Police Service operations to 110 Fairview Rd. will begin January 20th 2020 as planned and be completed the following week. A detailed schedule is being developed in coordination with the move consultant, move service provider, Barrie Police Service and Barrie Fire and Emergency Services,” writes J. Liefl, manager of facility planning and development.
Resulting from design choices and construction efficiencies, hard construction costs are currently forecast to be below budgeted figures by approximately one per cent, he adds. Of these savings, 50 per cent will be shared by the project will be kept by the owner group.
“The City of Barrie is entitled to approximately 76 per cent of the owner group savings. The City’s share of these savings will be reinvested into the project to contribute to other financial risks or retained by the City at the conclusion of the project.”
He continues that “significant budget risks to the project continue to exist outside of these hard construction costs and savings,” which are:
• New IT equipment identified as being required by BPS post-validation that was not originally included in the project budget. This risk still exists. The City’s projected percentage of hard construction savings should be able to fund this cost. 
• BPS communication requirements. This risk still exists. The City’s projected percentage of hard construction savings should be able to fund this cost.
