The new $16 Million addition to the Port Augusta Prison in South Australia when completed will house an extra 80 inmates and become the second largest prison in South Australia. Works started on the site in January 2011 and is nearing the final stages of completion.
Group company – Lietzke Doors worked closely with the builder and the client to design and supply innovative designs and solutions. The door frames and cell viewing windows were precast into the concrete panels reducing time and site costs and improving the overall strength and integrity of the frame and windows. This cast in concept offers advantages for the builder with a reduction in onsite trades and ease of coordination.
Lietzke Doors worked closely with the Architects and the builder and supplied and installed the post fixed secure external cell windows and glazing for the bedrooms. The cell external windows incorporate innovative security features as well as ventilation functionality.
Lietzke Doors also supplied the secure doors which included the cell doors and medium and high security general doors in the new extension to the facility.
