ARARAT PRISON

Hopkins Correctional Centre (HCC) provides medium-security accommodation for prisoners with protection requirements. HCC currently has single, double and triple-bed accommodation with an operational capacity of 388 prisoners, including a unit for aged and medically infirm prisoners. A prison expansion of HCC is currently underway, and once complete, the prison will accommodate 732 prisoners with eight beds for offenders on continued detention. HCC will be one of the first prisons in Victoria to combine community-style prison design with the Better Living Model, an innovative case management model for prisoner management.

Hurlcon Hydronic Heating have supplied specifically modified Solazar natural convectors to meet the Department of Corrections specifications and standards for the project's hydronic central heating system.   The Solazar's low surface temperature and specially designed mesh grilles, make them a safe and robust form of hydronic heating for prison conditions.  With their low h2O heat exchangers the Solazars also offer overall energy savings.   Designed and made here at our manufacturing plant in Keysborough Melbourne.
