The Southern Remand Centre (SRC) enables the State Government to work towards Tasmania’s compliance with UN minimum standards for sentenced and unsentenced offenders. For the first time remandees are housed separately from sentenced offenders, optimising service delivery by the Tasmania Prison Service.
Creating a new benchmark in correctional infrastructure in Tasmania, SRC provides a calm and safe working environment for staff and accommodation for remandees. The design harnesses natural light, provides connection to landscape, good acoustics and uses an inviting palette of colours and materials to create a calm, rehabilitative environment, whilst maintaining strict security and safety requirements.
SRC provides an open communal living environment with easy access to physical exercise and recreational activities, and controlled access to video conferencing technology for direct contact with family, friends and counsellors.
SRC successfully delivers a humane and inclusive prison, where a nurturing, rehabilitative environment provides dignity to those transitioning through the facility.
