Australia’s Largest Prison: Focusing on Health and Rehabilitation

Scroll down

From July the first cohort of prisoners will move into Clarence Correctional Centre – Australia’s largest Prison. The new facility located in Grafton NSW, will house up to 1,700 inmates at full capacity.

NBRS worked as Design Advisors on the project, assisting the Government, Perumal Pedavoli Architects and John Holland with design and service requirements that focus on the health and wellness of inmates. The aim was to create a world leading facility driving innovation in rehabilitation and reduction in recidivism.

Up to 90 prisoners a week will be transferred to the new facility when it opens in the coming months. Inmates will be transferred from facilities throughout NSW including Grafton Prison, with the aim of providing additional support to prisoners, and in turn, reduce the rate of re-offending.
