Project Win: New Prison in Full Sutton

Following the recent announcement of Kier’s successful bid to build Britain’s newest ‘smart’ prison next to HMP Full Sutton in Yorkshire, we are delighted to share our participation in this exciting new project.

For this development, our initial scope of works includes:

  • Deep primary drainage
  • 8 Precast attenuation tanks
  • Tarmac haul roads

Located in East Yorkshire, the prison will be sustainably built using several innovative solutions. The local area will also benefit from the creation of many construction jobs for the duration of the build, with hundreds more once the new prison opens.

As part of the New Prisons Programme, this category C prison is the third out of six to be built.  The new prison will provide over 1,400 modern prison places with the aim of getting more offenders into jobs when they are released. This purpose built prison will  offer classrooms and workshops, allowing prisoners to learn new skills in order to help reduce the chances of them re-offending.

We look forward to commencing works this autumn.
