“Pipeline of New Prisons”
Billahl Mehter, Principle Project Sponsor, MoJ
Examining the new prison builds which form part of the additional 10,000 places and £2.5bn commitment announced by the Government in 2019. This presentation will look at progress, plans and approach to procurement enabling collaboration and further development of the existing design. Although the programme is based on prisons in construction there is a need to modernise, moving to a newer environmental standards level and understanding the need for the estate to become carbon 0 ready.
