Mens prison

Maximum security

Mainstream maximum-security units will have 26 beds, mostly single bed cells but with several two-bed 'buddy' cells. 

The cells will be located over two storeys around a common 'day' area including lounge and dining facilities. 

Cells will be equipped with shower, toilet, bed, writing desk and television.  Access will be available to an attached, mesh-enclosed, exercise yard.

The maximum-security part of the campus will also include needs assessment, protection, crisis support, detention and behaviour management units, with layouts similar to the Mainstream units.

These units will be used to provide appropriate accommodation and management regimes for prisoners with specific needs.

Medium security

Medium security inmates will be housed in units of either 6 or 8 beds. 

Each unit will have individual bedrooms, along with a two-bed 'buddy' room, and common lounge, dining, toilet and shower facilities. 

Inmates will have access to a majority of the outdoor grounds in the Medium security part of the campus.

Common facilities

The new mens maximum/medium security prison will include workshops for prisoner industries, an education unit, two outdoor basketball courts, health centre and visits centre.
