Skanska advance HMP Grampian plans
February 6 2012
The 500 cell complex will replace outdated Victorian facilities within the existing Peterhead and Craiginches facilities with provision for a community reintegration unit, garden, playing field and allotments.
Unusually the jail will house all categories of offender; including men, women and youths, who will each be segregated within particular wings.
Demolition work on Peterhead is expected to commence this spring with construction work taking place by the summer for completion by 2013.
Skanska are undertaking design and construction work for the complex on behalf of the Scottish Prisons Service.
