project overview

The Capricornia Correctional Centre Expansion project is located 20km north of Rockhampton in Queensland, it provides facilities for remand, reception and sentenced high and low-security prisoners, and offers inmates a wide range of vocational education and training programs. The works include 164 additional residential cells in new buildings, 100 bunks in secure cells, a new residential officers station and a site-wide electronic security upgrade.



scope of works

Mitcon Projects delivered the full FRP package (including material supply) across 18x individual buildings and associated pavement works.


Specific works included survey/set out, detailed excavation, construction of in-situ footings, ground slabs, in-situ concrete walls, installation of precast deck units, topping slabs, and construction of in-situ stairs.


key outcomes

Mitcon Projects’ extensive experience and strong local work force have played a key role in assisting CPB Contractors to deliver this key infrastructure project. Mitcon initially secured an early works FRP package and through the diligent execution of this contract were awarded the main FRP package. This provided huge benefits for both CPB Contractors and Mitcon via minimising interfaces and reducing the security risk.


Circa 4500m3 of concrete, 450t of reinforcement steel, associated formwork and hundreds of precast panels have been supplied, installed and or placed by a peak workforce team of 45 including 6 site based management personnel.


In the challenging environment associated with working in a live correctional facility Mitcon was presented with strict security protocols relating to mobilisation requirements and the movement of tools, plant, equipment and staff across the facility. Through diligent planning and organisation, the Mitcon team have risen to the challenge resulting in a successful outcome for all parties.
