JohnStaff appointed INTREC to expand the existing Forensic Mental Health Pharmacy at Long Bay Jail, located along Anzac parade, Malabar. This design and construct refurbishment included demolition, installation and extension to the existing building.
Stage one involved a detailed excavation process, running the storm water lines and other environmental essentials before pouring out a new slab over the 160m2 area. During the substructure works contaminated materials were found within the ground, hindering further excavation until the materials were disposed of safely. Stage two of the programme involved progressive demolition of the dividing wall, which joined the existing building to the new building. Erecting the extension from one building to the other, meant constructing new substructures, external walls and ACM façade cladding.
The third and final stage involved the installation of safety features and project finishes. INTREC delivered a new security custodial door, made specifically for prisons and police stations. New high security windows and roofing were fitted to ensure all high security measures were taken. The internal fitout consisted of new lining, vinyl flooring and joinery, whilst the installation of new mechanical, electrical, fire and security services aided in meeting the clients’ requirements.
The design component was coordinated with Mode Design architects to ensure operations ran smoothing and on time. The project entailed modifications to the buildings retaining wall, redeveloping the structure into a sandstone block feature wall.
The project required an error free construction process, in order to ensure the jails security measures were consistent and reliable. INTREC demonstrated the ability to deliver a staged project, without disturbing occupants with a high need for security and safety.
