CPB Contractors, a CIMIC Group company, has won an AUD134M ($101.7M) contract to upgrade the Junee Correctional Centre, a prison in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW).

The design-build contract has been awarded by the Corrective Services NSW.

Under the contract, CPB Contractors will expand the existing prison to create a total of 480 new beds, incorporating new maximum security and administration buildings.

The firm will also demolish or relocate existing buildings, and modernise existing infrastructure to support the prison’s increased capacity.

Román Garrido, CPB Contractors managing director, said: “We will continue to work with Corrective Services NSW and Justice Infrastructure to achieve innovative and cost-effective solutions for this project.

“Developing increased job and work opportunities for local workers and businesses is also a priority for our team as the project progresses.”

Construction on the project is expected to begin in mid-2017 and be completed in 2019.
