Planned £3bn prison refurbishment framework created to ease strain

A planned nationwide prison refurbishment programme totalling £3bn has been agreed to improve and upgrade over 100 of the country’s aging Victorian prisons, including internal renovation and structural upgrades.

There have been several stories recently in the press about the strain on the UK prison system, with the numbers of those incarcerated almost doubling over the last 20 years and currently sitting at roughly 77,000 inmates, which is close to capacity.

It is hoped the planned upgrades will go some way towards fixing the problem of lack of available prison places caused primarily by a lack of space, but made worse by decrepit buildings and interiors limiting what can be achieved.

The problem Her Majesty’s Prisons are facing at the moment is perhaps best highlighted by recent news articles suggesting a delay on tougher sentencing is being caused by an imposed leniency thanks to the lack of space.

Approved prison furniture supplier

David Bailey Furniture Systems has experience in dealing with officials and other contractors working for the criminal justice system, having worked on many projects, including the Salford Custody Centre contract and work in Lewes, Ashford and Peterborough prisons, so we know what it takes to work and produce prison furniture to meet its standards.

Ben Gandy, site agent for Swift Southern Limited, who had a hand in managing the Salford project, said of us: “This is the first time we’ve worked with David Bailey Furniture Systems and I’d certainly work with them again. On this project, we were using 25 to 30 subcontractors onsite. David Bailey was one of the few we had no problem with. Everything was delivered on time and the David Bailey staff onsite were very helpful.”

What’s more, our versatile Healthline furniture range is perfectly suited to the various needs of prisons – in offices, libraries, clinics and medical treatment rooms. All our furniture is made from the highest quality materials right here in the UK and is competitively priced to ensure the Treasury gets the best deal we can give it.
