Adco Constructions has secured a contract to complete expansion works at Bunbury Regional Prison, while EMCO Building will construct a new performing arts centre at Melville Senior High School.

Under the $15.4 million contract, Adco will build a new 160-bed living unit at the prison along with a number of upgrades.

The upgrades will be undertaken to the utility services on-site, including a dining hall with kitchen facilities, an officer post, interview rooms, and staff amenities.

The news comes after Adco was awarded a $5.2 million state government contract for construction work at Wandoo Prison in July.

Meanwhile, Emco has secured a $4.5 million contract to build the new performing arts centre.

The facility will feature two connected spaces for drama and dance, both with sprung floors and divided by a movable wall.

There will be retractable seating for 300 people, a green room, foyer and gallery space, as well as storage and a staff study.

Education Minister Sue Ellery said the government was committed to investing in established schools.

"This investment will deliver a significant improvement for performing arts programs and performances at Melville Senior High School,” she said.

"Performances in classroom spaces without a stage will be a thing of the past, as the new facility will have industry-standard exhibition and performance spaces with audience seating, a stage and dedicated sound and lighting."
