Kane Constructions were awarded a Lump Sum contract for the Brisbane Women’s Correctional Facility Upgrade project. Works consisted of a staged infrastructure upgrade within a live prison. 

The first two stages running simultaneously were the car park upgrade and Block W. A temporary car park was constructed to facilitate expansion of the existing car park which included an additional 67 car spaces. Block W involved the refurbishment of a workshop to transform the area into bulk storage, chemical storage and office space. 

Following the completion of Block W the final two stages, M Block and E2 Block, ran simultaneously. M Block was an extension of the current laundry, reception and staff dining areas. E2 block comprised construction of an administration building comprising of 27 workstations and staff amenities.

Works were completed in mid-2018.
