Plans have been revealed to build a new 80-place national women’s prison in Stirling.
The facility will be located on the existing Cornton Vale site and contractors are now being invited to submit their bids for construction work.
The Scottish Prison Service are seeking a firm for a two-stage Design and Build contract, with Level 2 BIM a requirement.
Features of the facility will include; a health centre serviced by Forth Valley Health Board; education facilities for teaching and developing life skills; outdoor areas and a gymnasium. In addition, a quiet area will be built where women can also attend faith services.
