Auckland South Corrections Facility (ASCF) is a high security men’s prison located at Wiri, Auckland. The prison opened in May 2015, after a complex 29 months (approx.) construction period. As New Zealand’s recognised leader in high security prison fencing, Hampden Fence was engaged to work with all other key project stakeholders to successfully secure the prison.
Strategic design advice
Hampden Fence was involved at a very early stage of the project, supporting both the architects (Mode Design & Peddle Thorp) and the main contractor (Fletcher Construction) with initial design concepts and advice throughout until the designs were ultimately finalised. Hampden was also the first sub-contractor on site, creating an access point for the earthworks to commence. Some months later it began the custom fabrication of the high security fencing solutions to feature across the prison site.
Complexity, compliance and cooperation
The nature of the project meant a few more challenges than normal, and this meant Hampden needed to call on all of its experience from 11 completed prison projects to date.
