The new 1700 bed Grafton Correctional Centre is being delivered as a PPP (Public – Private – Partnership) by The Northern Pathways consortium on behalf of the NSW Government.
Woolacotts is supporting John Holland as the structural and civil engineering design partner for the new facility. Woolacotts has one of the most comprehensive and successful histories of experience as structural, civil and hydraulic engineers for correctional facilities in Australia
In recent years Woolacotts has been instrumental in designing modular ‘rapid-build’ modules to grow existing facilities. This new purpose-built facility 13kms from Grafton will address the critical shortage of correctional centre beds and facilities within NSW.
The construction and operation of the facility will also support long-term economic health of the Northern NSW economy.
