Plenary Justice, with B.C. provincial and Osoyoos Indian Band representatives, broke ground recently on the Okanagan Correctional Centre (OCC).

Plenary Justice was announced as the preferred proponent for the project in January following an extensive evaluation of three teams that were shortlisted and invited to submit proposals to design, build, partially finance and provide facilities management services for the OCC.

The project is scheduled to be finished in fall 2016 with capital construction costs capped at $192.9 million.

The contract to build the OCC on Osoyoos Indian Band land is the first such partnership between the province and a First Nation in B.C., laying out the details of the land lease and utilities service for a 60-year period, plus an option for an additional 20 years.
