Marngoneet Correctional Centre (Karreenga)

Victoria, Australia

The Marngoneet Correctional Centre (MCC), is located near Lara in Victoria and is a standalone medium security correctional facility which provides accommodation for up to 300 prisoners. The construction of this prisoner accommodation provided six bed single storey cottage style units with six units grouped together as one building; a secure perimeter 4.5m high fence with a 900mm anti-climb offset cowl on top. Also a new car park for staff and visitor.

Ireland Brown Constructions engaged Zutec on this project to consult and deliver a cloud based solution for several of their processes. The Snagging & Defect Management tool was used to help manage the Quality Assurance for the project. Ireland Brown Constructions used the Zutec solution to capture defects and raise them against the responsible subcontractors. The Client Representatives, Ireland Brown Constructions and all subcontractors used this tool to collaborate and resolve issues captured onsite. The Snagging & Defect Management tool also provided detailed insights and analytics through the embedded and interactive dash boarding on the Zutec Platform. The Zutec Firewall Penetrations tool was also utilised on this project which allowed Ireland Brown to confidently capture, manage and report on all fire penetrations across the project.

As with any large development, project handover is a key component in completion and Zutec's Digital Operations & Maintenance Manuals were used as a collaboration tool for all subcontractors to upload all of the required handover information which is essential for a smooth handover and successful running of the building post-handover. All information uploaded was brought through a workflow and validated by the various certifiers. Zutec's Digital Operations & Maintenance Manual tool provided real time reports on the handover documentation progress which enabled Ireland Brown Constructions to effectively track and capture all the required documentation in time for handover.
