This project comprised of the provision of accommodation for an additional 400 prisoners, on top of the existing 382 at the Hopkins Correctional Centre. In joint venture with Guymer Bailey, MODE undertook the master planning for this project and shaped a township with the old cell blocks centrally located, with new accommodation. The new prison precinct was contained within the existing secure perimeter line, while maintaining an adequate provision for recreational and open-space facilities, without over-intensive development.
