The Metropolitan Remand and Reception Centre (MRRC) is a maximum-security correctional facility for males which opened in 1997. The MRRC is the largest single correctional centre in Australia currently housing 1,100 inmates, the majority of whom are yet to be convicted or sentenced. Lendlease engaged Ward to complete civil works to facilitate the expansion of the MRRC. The expansion forms part of the NSW Prison Bed Capacity Program which aims to address the shortfall in inmate bed capacity in the State’s prisons through development of additional immediate, short and medium-term prison beds. The works are now in the final stages of improving the parking capacity for staff members at the facility.
