Geoffrey Robinson win contract working on UKs first all-electric prison

Working on behalf of Crown House Technologies, we’re delighted to be a part of building the UKs first all-electric prison, HMP Millsike.

The first prison in the UK to run solely on electricity using solar panels and heat pump technology, Geoffrey Robinson will be delivering a suite of mechanical services throughout the 44-week project.

Andy Talbot, Executive Director at Geoffrey Robinson said: “We’re proud to be a trusted partner for the MOJ. Having delivered works in live prison environments over the last 20 years, this is our first new build prison project and a very prestigious one to be involved in

“Being a part of multi-million-pound projects such as this is fantastic as it not only allows us to demonstrate our quality service on a larger scale but provides opportunities for members of our team who may not have worked on something of this size and complexity before – we always want to provide the right environment where people can thrive and experience different things and I look forward to seeing what our team achieve here.”

Our scope of works covers the supply, delivery and site acceptance testing of the mechanical and public health systems, including low temperature hot water, domestic hot and cold-water systems, boosted cold water service, flushing water systems and above ground drainage pipework.

We’ll also carry out the final site installation and connections of the off-site fabricated cell riser modules, roof top modules and plant skids as well as the fit out of the main plantrooms and installation of bespoke sanitary ware to the prison cells and staff areas.

The new facility, near York, is due to open in 2025 and will house almost 1,500 inmates once complete.
