John Holland has completed construction works on the Clarence Correctional Centre and has handed over to its new operators Serco.
The Clarence Correctional Centre, located in New South Wales, has capacity for 1700 beds and has been designed to offer the maximum opportunities for rehabilitation.
Community buildings are part of the centre and are designed to deliver work experience, trade and other programs to prepare inmates for release.
John Holland CEO Joe Barr has congratulated the team on the completion of the works.

“After 949 days of hard work, I am proud that our people have delivered a state-of-the-art corrections facility that will focus on keeping the community safe and reducing recidivism,” Barr said.
“Since we started on site, 350,000 cubic metres of earth has been moved, 65 buildings have been constructed and 52,300 cubic metres of concrete has been placed.
“Using innovative methods such as precast concrete panels, we were able to deliver this centre on time, benefiting the community through a forecast injection of $560 million into the local economy over 20 years, and the creation of approximately 1100 jobs during construction and 600 jobs once the centre is operational.”
