Geoffrey Pearce Correctional Centre is a 240 bed upgrade to the John Morony Correctional Centre, and forms part of the NSW Government’s $3.8 billion investment towards increased prison capacity.

The Geoffrey Pearce Correctional Centre project involved the demolition of the old minimum security accommodation areas and the construction of:

Five new two-storey minimum and medium security accommodation blocks

New high security Segregation block

New Gatehouse

New Reception building

Project scope

The OMMPCC project integrates with the existing 70 bed Honour House accommodation complex, providing a comprehensive social rehabilitation pathway for medium and minimum security inmates. OMMPCC also expands access to voluntary drug programs and other schemes designed to further reduce recidivism.

The proximity of Geoffrey Pearce Correctional Centre to the Sydney metro area will alleviate pressure on the NSW prison system, allowing inmates to be closer to Sydney courts and correctional programs, as well as minimising impact to prisoner families.

The Geoffrey Pearce Correctional Centre project was documented in Revit, with 3D modelling and coordination occurring between all design consultants. Building structures were Concrete slabs on ground, with precast concrete wall elements, suspended reinforced concrete floors, and light weight metal roofs.
