Mid North Coast Correctional Centre is a maximum, medium and minimum security centre for males and females situated at Aldavilla, 455 km north of Sydney and 14 km west of Kempsey.
A new facility is being constructed that will include four new accommodation blocks each with 110 beds and an exercise yard, an industries and programs building, clinic, associated custodial offices, a network of secure walkways, outdoor recreational areas including sports fields, and a new secure perimeter

Part of the program included the installation of an Indirect Evaporative cooler. The indirect evaporative principle allows effective efficient cooling with low power input, using the evaporative principle but without extra humidity being added to the supply air.

This makes it an ideal solution for cooling high activity areas that require fresh air which by standard airconditioning methods would normally require a large power supply.
