HMYOI Polmont is Scotland’s national holding facility for male 16-21 year olds.
akp was employed to carry out refurbishment works to Activity buildings 1 and 2 within HMYOI Polmont. The main challenge of the project was to carry out construction works within a live prison environment.
The contract was design and build, therefore thought had to be given to the design with respect to security implications. The refurbishment and fit out works were completed over two floors including all M & E works. The area was then transformed to accommodate new learning and development areas for young offenders. The link walkway was totally upgraded with polycarbonate panels to provide light.
Update – May 2017
Akp were asked to return to HMYOI Polmont and further refurbish the education and training facilities located in Activities 1 & 2 buildings.
