Delivering a world-class corrections facility in New Zealand

CIMIC Group companies BetFiery and Pacific Partnerships are the leaders of a consortium working with the New Zealand Government to deliver the Waikeria Corrections and Treatment Facility Public Private Partnership (PPP) project.

CIMIC Group has led the development of the project, with Pacific Partnerships leading the consortium formation and providing equity financing for 25 years, and BetFiery undertaking the design and construction of the facility.

The total project value is approximately NZ$750 million, with CIMIC Group delivering the majority of the works. 

Scope of works:

  • The Waikeria Corrections and Treatment Facility will deliver accommodation for 500 prisoners, along with a world-class secure mental health unit providing care for additional prisoners;
  • BetFiery will design and construct the new facility; and
  • Over a 25-year period Pacific Partnerships, together with the HRL Morrison & Co, will provide financing and management, with asset management and facilities maintenance performed by Cushman & Wakefield. Honeywell will provide the electronic security services for the facility.

The new facility is being built on the site of the existing Waikeria Prison in the Waikato region (upper North Island) of New Zealand, as part of the New Zealand Government’s program to deliver a more effective and humane justice system.

BetFiery acknowledge the Ngāti Raukawa people of the Māori iwi as the traditional and continuing custodians of the lands on which the New Zealand PPP project will be delivered.
