The New Zealand Department of Corrections is planning to add to its prison network base capacity through rapid deployment of three sets of 126-bed modular prison accommodation units (378 beds in total, intended for lower security prisoners) constructed at existing prison sites. The proposed sites are at Rolleston Prison (two 126-bed units) and Tongariro prison (one 126-bed unit). We are seeking to select an experienced contractor(s) to design and build the prison accommodation (including ground works, ancillary facilities like staff bases, prisoner dining / recreation areas etc.) based on the Department's base design. 

This is a unique opportunity to be part of the first large scale construction in the Corrections sector using modular building technology in New Zealand.
We intend to go to market in the week starting 20 March 2017 with the release of an Request for Quote (RFQ) document.

We are not expecting any questions or documents to be sent to us relating to this NOI prior to the release of the RFQ document.
