Client: Kier Construction

Location: Banstead, Surrey

Built on the site of a former mental hospital, Highdown Prison was opened in 1992.

This project was the construction of a new reception block, extension to the kitchen facilities and the creation of a new visitors car park.

All works were carried out when this high security prison was fully operational, so all Drivepoint Contractors site personnel had to pass a stringent security clearance process and adhere to strict codes of conduct whilst on site.

The project involved removal of existing service yard, strip foundations, cast in situ stairs and landings, structural toppings to hollow rib, extensive drainage, I.T and electrical diversion works.
