City approves renovation for Guelph police headquarters

On February 2, City Hall approved a $25 890 000, exclusive of HST, proposal by Jasper Construction Corp. for the renovation of Guelph Police Service headquarters located at 15 Wyndham Street.  

Out of the six tenders submitted, Jasper Construction Corp. of Concord, Ontario presented the best option. City Council allocated $34,000,000 out of the capital budget for the project.

The construction company, owned by Jasper Group, has worked on other notable projects such as the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Toronto, the famous King Edward Hotel and multiple health and fitness centres across southern Ontario. The police station is not in Jasper’s current projects list yet, but more of their work can be found online at

“The City looks forward to working with Guelph Police Service and Jasper Construction Corp. on this important project,” says the Deputy CAO of Infrastructure, Development and Enterprise Services Scott Stewart on behalf of City Hall.

The Police Chief was just as optimistic: “We are pleased to be on budget and remain committed to the completion of a successful project that meets the needs of our community and our members.”

A 3D video of the renovation plan can be found on the Guelph Police Service website along with a plan to be completed by 2017. Click here to watch the renovation video on YouTube.

Its likely construction will commence within six to eight weeks.
