Rivergum Residential Treatment Centre, Ararat
Slattery provided cost management services for this new $45m offender treatment centre, the first facility of its kind in Australia. With 20-beds, it provides a secure, therapeutic environment for offenders classified under a post-sentence scheme; serious sex offenders and violent offenders who continue to pose a risk to society but have served their sentences and require ongoing supervision or detention. The facility includes a series of therapeutically designed multifunctional spaces for the delivery of specialist and intensive treatment services and programs. Other facilities support living skills, fitness and sport and education and operating staff of 50, combined with recommended security features to prevent escape and maintain safety for all within.
