The Ravenhall Prison Project is a significant project to substantially increase the prison capacity of Victoria. Delivered through a full service PPP, the project is currently in the closing stages of the tender process. MBM are engaged as the technical facilities management advisor. Our role has been to prepare the facilities life cycle and operational cost public sector comparator, prepare the facilities management specification and advise the State during the tender process.
The Project is the first Victorian PPP to be procured under the new Victorian PPP Guidelines and incorporate a High Risk/High Value peer review and scope ladder development. Acknowledging that available prisoner places and use of prisoner labour were key project objectives, MBM worked closely with the operations team, design team and commercial advisers to develop a regime that ensures standards are maintained without placing undue risk with the Project Co.
