Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre

Building Queensland is investigating options for the expansion of the Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre located in Wacol, a high security remand facility for male prisoners in Southern Queensland.

Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre currently provides 890 high security cells for prisoners in remand. The Business Case will assess the construction of 328 additional cells to meet growth in remand prisoner numbers across Queensland’s corrective services system.

Building Queensland has also assisted with two related proposals to meet current and forecast demand for correctional facilities. These proposals assessed:

  • a 1004 cell development at Southern Queensland Correctional Centre
  • a 244 cell expansion at Capricornia Correctional Centre.

The Queensland Government committed $1 million from the 2016‑17 State Budget to develop the Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre Business Case. Building Queensland is leading the Business Case in partnership with Queensland Corrective Services within the Department of Justice and Attorney-General.

The Detailed Business Case is expected to be completed in Q2 2017.
