Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) Grampian

Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) Grampian

The £140m state-run facility replaced the former HMPs Aberdeen and Peterhead. The new HMP and Young Offenders Institute, HMP Grampian, is on the site of the former Peterhead prison which was originally built in 1888. It is the first prison in Scotland to jointly house youths, men and women of all categories.

The new facility will include the full range of prison buildings including kitchen, laundry, links and education, prisoner regimes, recreation facilities, visitor, staff and administration spaces. The Main Contractor for the project is Skanska, and the Company has developed the structural and civil design as well as undertaking the installation of mechanical and electrical services.

The fire alarm installation was subcontracted and a 2000 alarm point system had to be installed requiring security, speed and efficiency. The Linian Clip was an integral part of this installation and proved to save time and money whilst achieving and exceeding all requirements.
