Project Description

The project involved the design and build of a new gymnasium with associated changing and office facilities within HMP Shrewsbury. The building was a traditional steel framed, brick clad structure on CFA piled foundations. We constructed the building within a fully operational prison with restricted access and storage space. We achieved all Ministry of Justice set project KPIs and achieved an 85% average in the Customer Satisfaction Survey. Excellent relationships with the prison establishment were maintained which was critical when working in a live prison. We achieved programme despite considerable weather delays during brickwork construction, which was commended by the Governor.
