Client: Department of Corrections

Services: Cost Management & Quantity Surveying

Overview

This multi-million redevelopment involved the construction of five buildings to provide accommodation and support services to the 554-bed prison.

Replacing the dated facilities of a heritage building, the new buildings feature an innovative ‘twin-skin’ cladding system for security, privacy and to give the appearance of commercial buildings.

These streamlined facilities create a more efficient and integrated single prison system.

The Details

The prison now also has sustainable Green Star energy-efficient features.

RLB provided full quantity and cost management services.

Challenges included extensive heritage work, in-ground services, a constricted site and a live prison environment.

The project was delivered on budget. Extensive value management was undertaken to create savings to fund additional scope items.
