The centre as briefed consisted of three major facilities: 800 bed correctional facility; 32 bed mental health and behavioural management centre; 24 bed supported accommodation and program centre.

In addition to the major facilities these centres were also supported by staff training facilities, visitor accommodation, bulk stores, laundry and various external agriculture and educational facilities.

The key feature of the correctional centre is the integration of male and female prisoners and the provision for all types of prisoner risk categories.

The master planning and individual building planning catered for this diverse prison population while creating a non-threatening non-institutional setting.

This project bid commenced once the Assure Partners Consortium was short listed from the expression of interest submission.
