2022 has seen us working alongside Wates Smartspace on their strip out and refurbishment contract at HMP Norwich.
The project sees the creation of a new 16-room on-site court complete with a video conferencing centre (VCC) as well as delivering preparatory work for 48 Rapid Deployment Cells (RDC) accommodation units with additional dining area, laundry room, staff office and mechanical and electrical plant room.
Wates Smartspace have embarked on a nationwide programme to fit-out and refurbish 12 probation offices and prisons on behalf of the MoJ, an investment to modernise the estates being used by the Probation Service in England and Wales. Repurposed from a former on-site gym, the new court and VCC suite saw the team strip out 385 sq m of space to create 16 court rooms with new audio-visual equipment to enhance virtual connectivity. The team has also undertaken 2,926 sq m of groundworks and delivered mechanical and electrical (M&E) infrastructure for the creation of new RDC accommodation at HMP Norwich.
We are delighted to be assisting the team in achieving a Very Good BREEAM rating for the scheme.
