Project Overview

Project to create a new facility for prisoners with terminal conditions and limited mobility that was undertaken during the recent Covid -19 outbreak.These works were carried out in sensitive environments and strict vetting of our workforce is required.Our significant experience in operating in HMP Prison environments has helped us to identify continuous improvement and efficiencies in time, cost, and quality, that we can bring to all our projects. This has gone some way to mitigate against any delays and additional cost because of the Covid outbreak and has ensured that the project was handed over on time and within budget.
