Purpose-Designed Modular Buildings to Support Justice Sector Modernisation


Purpose-Designed Modular Buildings to Support Justice Sector Modernisation

The Government has pledged to spend £4bn to create 18,000 additional prison spaces. We provide high-quality, robust modular buildings to support the modernisation of the prison estate.

We work directly with the Ministry of Justice and for T1 contractors, delivering both temporary decant facilities using offsite construction techniques to maintain service provision while prison buildings are undergoing refurbishment, and purpose-designed modular facilities for a wide range of uses on prison sites.

Specialist Experience

Our teams have extensive experience delivering NOMS-compliant modular buildings, including offices, holding cells, gatehouses, multi-faith centres, and other ancillary facilities.

We can also use offsite manufacturing to provide rapid deployment cells to help prisons to expand capacity to meet short -term needs and increasing pressures on the service .

Reduced Disruption

By moving construction offsite and into a factory, deliveries to the prison site during the build phase are radically reduced which means less disruption to the prison service and security.

Our high-specification modular buildings also aid contractors working on major new build prison projects by moving ancillary facilities such as offices and faith centres off the critical path.

Sustainable Modular Building Solutions

Our modular buildings are designed to align with sustainability agendas at every stage of their lifecycle, reducing carbon emissions, vehicle movements, and material waste..

Our modular construction factories generate zero waste to landfill, and our buildings are precision-engineered for enhanced energy efficiency.

Our approach also offers whole-life cost benefits, re-uses embodied carbon as our steel buildings are recyclable, and we adopt the principles of circularity.


Why choose Premier for your prison build project?
