HMP Grampian receives first inmates
March 3 2014
Designed by Holmes Miller and Skanska the £85m ‘titan’ jail in Peterhead will house a maximum of 500 prisoners from all categories and age groups, making it unique in the UK.
Conceived as a ‘community facing’ jail the facility incorporates a number of specialist units designed to curb re-offending such as a telephone marketing centre with segregation achieved via acarefully considered circulation routes.
HMP Grampian replaces the existing HMP Peterhead and HMP Aberdeen, both of which are being sold for redevelopment.
