The firm was appointed to the upgrade scheme by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), as part of a wider £3.8 billion estate modernisation programme.  

ISG will refurbish and return to use 300 single-person cells at the Category B men’s prison in the Winson Green area of the city. 

It is understood to be the firm’s “largest refurbishment project to date”. 

ISG is also one of four project partners on the MoJ’s £1 billion New Prisons Programme Alliance to deliver four new adult male prisons across the UK. 

The contractor has also been appointed to the MoJ’s five-year, £2.5 billion Constructor Services Framework, providing access to national and regional projects valued up to £30 million. 

“The MoJ continues to be one of our most innovative and progressive customers across a range of measures – from procurement approaches, modern methods of construction (MMC) adoption and as an environmental, social and governance (ESG) trailblazer,” said Alister McNeil, sector director for justice, ISG.
