Spring Hill Corrections Facility, Meremere
This multi-award-winning project for the Department of Corrections created a self-sufficient village in Waikato with residential accommodation for 650 inmates, as well as training, industrial, rehabilitation, sports and administration facilities.
S&T provided master planning, architecture and building services design for over 40 buildings in and surrounding the secure area, including long span industrial units, office and administration facilities and residential units.
Environmentally sustainable design principles were incorporated into the design with the largest solar hot water installation in New Zealand, and energy-efficient condensing boilers linked into floor heating.
