Arup, EC Harris and HLM win Magilligan Prison contract

Consultancies Arup and EC Harris have been appointed to design and administer the construction contract for the 800-bed Magilligan Prison, which is to be built on the existing prison site.

The firms won the work from the Northern Ireland Prison Service along with partner, architect HLM.

The team will provide comprehensive integrated design services over pre-construction stage during the next 30 months and will then become the technical design advisor and contract administrator for the Prison Service during the construction of the new prison, which will be undertaken on a sequenced basis.

Prison service director Robin Masefield said: “Their concept designs, already submitted as part of their tender bid, will now be developed, refined and tested against our requirements and I and the staff at Magilligan prison look forward to working closely with them in progressing this exciting project.”
