Question ref. S6W-03682
Asked by: Edward Mountain, Highlands and Islands, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 12 October 2021


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-02328 by Keith Brown 31 August 2021, whether the contract to design and construct HMP Highland was awarded in September and, if so, to which company.

Current status: Answered by Keith Brown on 27 October 2021


I have asked Teresa Medhurst, Interim Chief Executive of the Scottish Prison Service (SPS), to respond. Her response is as follows:

The SPS awarded the pre-construction services contract for the HMP Highland project to Balfour Beatty in September 2021.

The SPS are working with Balfour Beatty to further develop the design of HMP Highland, prior to the award of a stage two contract that will deliver the construction element of the project.
