Cessnock Correctional Complex
Hunter Correctional Centre is a maximum-security prison housing 400 inmates, just 150km North of Sydney. Open on January 30th, 2018 this ‘rapid-build’ prison was constructed in just 12 months. Unlike other prisons, Cessnock Prison has no cells, prisoners live in dormitory style accommodation with 25 inmates in each of the 16 dormitories.
Two hundred inmates work at industries including upholstery, metal work and food services for up to five hours in the morning, while the remaining undertake their education and programs. The group swaps over in the afternoon.
Actifurn was contracted by Lendlease to complete a full supply and fit out of this prison, including general furniture, cleaning equipment, electrical appliances, engineering and ground maintenance equipment, lockers, shelving, cabinets, medical equipment, engineering equipment, storage and much more.
