Delivering an advanced prison upgrade
CPB Contractors is working with Queensland Corrective Services to deliver significant facility upgrades at the Capricornia Correctional Centre that will support an increase in capacity and ongoing prison services.
The design and construct contract will generate revenue to CPB Contractors of approximately $145 million.
Construction is expected to commence in early 2018 and conclude in 2020.
Our extensive track record of correctional facilities work is built on a disciplined and cost-effective approach, working collaboratively with our clients to complete challenging building programs in live, secure environments, without disrupting real-time facility operations.
During all phases of the project, our team is committed to developing increased local job and work opportunities for Queensland’s Capricorn Coast residents and businesses as a priority, and to ensure that all project objectives are achieved.
Scope of works include:
- A minimum of 164 additional residential cells in new buildings.
- 100 bunks in secure cells.
- A new residential officers station.
- A site-wide electronic security upgrade.
Located 20km north of Rockhampton in Queensland, Capricornia Correctional Centre provides facilities for remand, reception and sentenced high and low-security prisoners, and offers inmates a wide range of vocational education and training programs.
