    Shortlisted consortia announced for Eastern Goldfields Regional Prison redevelopment project

    • Three private companies shortlisted for Eastern Goldfields prison project

    Treasurer Christian Porter has named the three private sector consortia shortlisted to design, build, finance and maintain the new Eastern Goldfields Regional Prison (the EGRP Project).


    The shortlisted consortia for the EGRP Project, that will be delivered as a Public Private Partnership (PPP), are:


    • Assure Partners comprising: Capella Capital Pty Ltd, John Holland Pty Ltd, Pindan Contracting Pty Ltd and Honeywell Limited
    • The Aurum Partnership comprising: Leighton Contractors Pty Limited, Broad Construction Services (WA) Pty Ltd, Programmed Facility Management Pty Ltd and Bilfinger Berger Project Investment Pty Ltd
    • EG PathWAys comprising: McConnell Dowell Corporation Limited, Spotless Facility Services Pty Ltd, RBS Group (Australia) Pty Ltd and John Laing Investments Limited

    All three consortia responded to the State Government’s call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) to deliver the prison by late 2015 and were rigorously reviewed to emerge as the shortlisted respondents.


    The new 350-bed all security, mixed gender prison will be designed and constructed using private sector expertise through a PPP procurement model, but it will be Government owned and operated.


    “A final decision on the preferred proponent will only be made after the detailed proposals have gone through an extensive evaluation process to determine whether they meet the Government’s high expectations,” Mr Porter said


    “They will be assessed as to whether they represent value for money when compared to the cost of public sector delivery as measured by a public sector comparator.”


    Being predominantly indigenous male and female prisoners, the new EGRP will allow more offenders from the Goldfields region to serve their sentences close to their families and communities and provide culturally appropriate programs and courses to enhance prospects for rehabilitation.

    • The EGRP Project is part of the State’s new custodial infrastructure program to deliver 1,657 additional beds across the prison system
