RAVENHALL PRISON NAMED AUSTRALIA’S BEST INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT

Victoria’s $670 million Ravenhall Prison Project has been named as Australia’s best infrastructure project at Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s National Infrastructure Awards.

Ravenhall Prison - Original concept design

“It is exciting to see the Ravenhall Prison Project win the Project of the Year Award as it is the first privately delivered prison project Victoria has seen in about 20 years – delivered on-budget and on-time”
— IPA Chief Executive Adrian Dwyer.

Gatehouse

“The Ravenhall Prison Project fundamentally transforms the way that support is provided to people in the justice system in Victoria.

“In a Victorian first, the proponents will oversee all elements of the prison’s operations, including custodial services, with performance targets to directly reduce the rate of recidivism.

“Australia is a world leader in bringing together the public and private sectors through Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) to deliver better outcomes for the community.

“The Ravenhall Prison Project is a stellar example of the evolution of the PPP model in Australia and shows what can be achieved when the public and private sectors collaborate to achieve good outcomes.

“I pass on my congratulations to the winners of the Project of the Year Award tonight,” Mr Dwyer said.

NEW SHEPPARTON LAW COURTS | IN THE NEWS

Set to open in just two days, the new Shepparton Law Courts have been in the news once again. 

In this article, The Age discusses the design of the new Shepparton Law Courts with Architectus Director Mark Wilde, providing insight into how the building itself will help to alleviate stress for its users.

Shepparton's new court building is designed to minimise stress and intimidation, in part via transparent building materials.

Today, rather than intimidate, courts the world over are increasingly designed to alleviate stress.

The Shepparton Law Courts is a joint venture project between Architectus, GHD Woodhead and Guymer Bailey Architects. This is the second joint venture courthouse that Guymer Bailey has worked with Architectus on, the first being the award winning Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law in Brisbane.
