Panel Arrangement:


The Department is proposing to redevelop the Yongah Hill Immigration Detention Centre (YHIDC) in Northam Western Australia. YHIDC was opened in 2012 and is located approximately 90km east of Perth and 5km from the town centre of Northam WA.

The current facility consists of four accommodation compounds, YHIDC Eagle, YHIDC Swan, YHIDC Falcon and YHIDC Hawk, each with shared amenities along with associated support buildings, infrastructure and various physical and operational security measures. There is an existing central access spine running north to south providing a distinct separation between YHIDC Eagle and YHIDC Swan which are west of the spine, and YHIDC Falcon and YHIDC Hawk which is east of the spine. The redevelopment will take place west of the spine in the YHIDC Eagle and YHIDC Swan location. The project will take place in an operational site and include two construction stages. Stage one will need to be completed before stage two can commence. Compounds associated with each phase will be fully decanted before construction. The facility will remain operational during both phases of construction.

When completed, the redeveloped facility will provide 120 new beds (constructed from modular accommodation) along with associated support buildings, infrastructure and various physical security measures.

Other Instructions:

There will be a mandatory site briefing session.
