Justice & Corrections
We have an extensive track-record of working with justice and corrections customers for both government and the private sector to deliver high performing, technically advanced, quality projects. Our portfolio includes courthouses, prisons and coronial service centres.
We understand the importance of delivering justice and corrections projects that meet our customers’ needs in key areas such as security, safety and operational excellence. We also have a detailed understanding of custodial protocols when working within live operating environments, which has been critical to the successful delivery of projects in this sector.
Our whole-of-life approach to the delivery, operations, maintenance and partnership funding of justice and corrections projects is combined with unparalleled technical expertise, including the utilisation of modularisation and pre-fabrication techniques. This means we are able to maximise the value to our customers across the entire project lifecycle.
We also have highly skilled and experienced staff with a detailed understanding of custodial protocols, enabling us to partner with customers to deliver within live operating environments. This capability has been critical to the successful delivery of many projects in this sector.
Our recent project experience includes design and construction of the 1,300 bed Ravenhall Prison in Victoria in conjunction with the GEO Group as the private operator. This facility is due to commence operations in 2017. We also undertook the design, construction, finance and maintenance (DCFM) of the state-of-the-art 350 bed Eastern Goldfields Regional Prison in Western Australia, delivered as a public private partnership (PPP) with the State Government. Other recently completed project include the Newcastle Courthouse redevelopment, Risdon Prison Complex in Tasmania, the Cessnock Correctional Centre in New South Wales, and the design and construction of Yongah Hill Immigration Detention Centre in Western Australia for the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC).
The NorthernPathways consortium (comprising John Holland, Serco, John Laing and Macquarie Capital) has been announced as the Preferred Bidder for the New Grafton Correctional Centre (NGCC) project. This modern correctional facility includes a 1,000-bed male maximum-security facility; a 300-bed female maximum-security facility; and a 400-bed male minimum security facility. Construction is due to commence in mid-2017 and the new Centre will open in 2020.
