Spring Hill Corrections Facility

Spring Hill Corrections Facility (SHCF) was the final and largest of the four new facilities built as part of the Regional Prisons Development Project – purpose built to meet the rehabilitative needs of prisoners.

LA4 were part of the multi-disciplinary professional team commissioned to prepare reports for the site selection process for this new men’s correctional facility. 20 sites were short listed, visual and landscape assessments for the sites prepared and recommendations on a preferred site made.

A comprehensive visual and landscape effects assessment was then undertaken for the selected 215-hectare site at Spring Hill and landscape mitigation plans prepared to integrate the large facility into its rural setting.
