E7 Building Services division has been appointed by Kier Construction to deliver MEP services for the new prison at Wellingborough.

With a £7m MEP value, E7 will work on the ancillary buildings on behalf of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Works include the entrance resource, central services, support, workshop and kitchen buildings.

The scheme incorporates standardised MEP components, with the innovative design for the new prison development at Wellingborough supporting future use on subsequent MoJ projects. The project will be delivered through a project partnering contract to promote collaboration and innovative working.

The 1,680 place category C resettlement prison will create a safe, secure and decent environment for both staff and offenders, aiding rehabilitation and supporting the MoJ’s broader sustainability commitments. The Prime Minister also announced in August that the Government will invest £2.5 billion to transform the estate further, creating an additional 10,000 new places that will boost rehabilitation and cut reoffending.

Dave Newman, Commercial Manager at E7 Building Services is “proud to be part of the team delivering this project, working on behalf of the MoJ and continuing our established relationship with Kier.”

Construction is currently underway and is planned for completion in late 2021.
