Buildoffsite Wellingborough Prison Factory Tour hosted by Bison and Kier, Thursday 13th February 2020


Kier is currently delivering a new build resettlement prison at Wellingborough after being awarded the £253m contract by the MoJ. The team is adopting a Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) or ‘kit-of-parts’ approach, incorporating repeatable, standardised components and assemblies across the 13 buildings on site.

The project makes extensive use of precast concrete components, bringing together three separate precast suppliers, including Forterra’s specialist precast division, Bison.

As part of the Bison factory tour, guests will be able to see some of the components being manufactured and gain insight into the collaborative approach being adopted by the project team.

Places are limited – so please register to attend early.

Due to the sensitivity of the project, no photography will be permitted.

PPE will be required so please bring the following:

·        Boots

·        Hard hat

·        Hi vis vest / jacket

·        High vis trousers

·        Safety glasses
