Project: Mt Eden Corrections Facility: Building C, Auckland
This project is part of the Department of Correction’s ‘Capacity Programme’ within the largest remand prison in the country. Mt Eden has a high volume of prisoner movements, releases, and visits. This 7,770m2 multi-storey accommodation block sits in the middle of the Mt Eden Corrections Facility (MECF) and contains 245 prisoner places.
The project also involved several ancillary works outside the new building to improve MECF’s ability to accommodate prisoners. These included an upgrade to site-wide electronic security systems, kitchen and laundry facilities, staff parking, and expansion of existing prisoner exercise areas.
Project Manager, Neville McAnnalley had over 1,800 people involved in the on-site delivery of the project.
The judges noted that this was a challenging project undertaken in a live environment. Challenges included limitations for scheduling deliveries to site, functionality restrictions such as no cell-phones on-site, and the stringent security aspects that overlaid everything.
Neville developed a strong relationship with the client and tried a couple of alternative delivery approaches that differed from what had been undertaken on previous projects on this site.
