∞ Nuvo Group was successfully selected by Cockram Construction from a full public tender as the preferred contractor for the $4.6 million Electrical, Technology and Data packages. Each applicant was evaluated against a strict set of criteria and industry best practice. Nuvo’s extensive Government facilities track record and credentials were vital in being awarded the packages.
Nuvo undertook a full Design and Construct contract over 14 months. The scope required the creation of a completely new standalone detention facility. This involved construction of 6 new buildings including a new gatehouse, 3 residential blocks, a recreational facility, and an education wing.
A high attention to detail was required to deliver a suite of high security and technology throughout with a special focus on antivandalism measures. Full fi bre circuits and CBUS technology with redundancy were required to ensure that security systems were highly robust and uninterruptible. Stringent adherence to process was required while working on an operational detention facility.
A key project delivery requirement was a compressed timeline that required that all six buildings of the new facility were constructed simultaneously. Nuvo’s streamlined project methodology ensured that a highly complex construction with many specialist subcontractor packages being delivered concurrently was delivered within time, to budget and specifi cation.∞
