The Ravenhall Prison Project
Ravenhall Prison is a new medium-security men’s prison currently being built in Melbourne’s
west and is due for completion in late 2017. Ravenhall will deliver a modern facility that will play
a significant role in the Victorian corrections system. The prison will enhance community safety
by securely and humanely containing prisoners and providing programs and services designed to
reduce reoffending. The new prison will initially accommodate 1,000 prisoners with built capacity
for 1,300 prisoners should this be required in the future. The prison location and proximity to
Melbourne city centre will provide ready access for staff, visitors and family.
The new prison is being delivered as a Partnerships Victoria public private partnership, which will
see the prison designed, built, operated and maintained by the GEO Consortium. The major
GEO Consortium members are GEO Group (prison operator and equity investor), John Holland
(builder), Honeywell (facilities management), Capella Capital (financial adviser), with a range of
Alliance Partners providing health and other services.
Correct Care (formerly GEO Care) has been contracted to provide primary health services in the
new facility. Forensicare will provide forensic mental health services at the prison. Key alliance
partners, including Kangan Institute, YMCA, The Western Suburbs Indigenous Gathering Place
Association and Melbourne City Mission, will deliver programs and services both in custody and
Service delivery will focus on:
- Prisoners with a mental illness
- Prisoners with challenging behaviours
- Younger prisoners
- Indigenous prisoners
- Prisoners serving shorter sentences
- Providing pre and post release services and
- Reducing recidivism
The new prison will include a mix of low-rise accommodation, administration, programs, health
and mental health facilities, industries and recreation buildings surrounded by a solid perimeter
The facility will also house:
- Accommodation for mainstream and protection prisoners
- 10 subacute medical beds
- 10 inpatient primary healthcare beds
- 75 inpatient forensic mental health beds
