Correctional Centres

VAE have been involved with the installation and maintenance of HVAC systems in nearly every correctional facility in Queensland, and numerous correctional centres across both islands of New Zealand. In gaining this experience, we have learned valuable lessons in the design, construction, and maintenance of correctional institutions.

The following projects showcase our expertise and understanding of the operational risk involved in working in correctional facilities.

Systems need to be engineered and installed for absolute certainty of operation and any disruption to the facility must be kept to a minimum whenever maintenance is required.
VAE understand the importance of keeping inmates cool and calm with compliant mechanical and exhaust systems. Our safety and quality practices build certainty into our project methodologies. Early engagement with our clients to better understand the project creates opportunities for innovation, and our collaborative approach establishes win/win relationships.
