Contractor : Carillion
Location : Polmont, Scotland
Miller fabrications have worked continuously over a 10 year period in various prisons throughout Scotland as sub-contractors to Carillion, Interserve and Skanska. In addition to Polmont Prison we have also worked in Glenochil, Soughton, Barlinne and Addiwell.
Our work in Polmont Prison for Carillion was on-going over a three year period. Temporary walkways and link corridors were constructed to transport inmates whilst renovation work was carried out elsewhere in the prison.
Walkways and Link Corridors
Designed, fabricated and installed by Miller Fabrications, the units are constructed from a hollow section frame braced with rolled steel angles and clad with a 3mm galvanized mild steel plate fixed with security self-tapping screws. The walkways are supported by universal columns which were designed using bolted connections in order that the units could be dismantled and re-used elsewhere in the prison. We installed and dismantled the walkways as and when they were required in the various parts of the prison grounds.
We also designed, fabricated and installed structural steel maximum security gates in accordance with SPS (Scottish Prison Services) specifications. The gates are a fully welded mild steel construction with a wire mesh infill and were galvanised after fabrication. We also carried out various elements of secondary steelwork in both the house blocks and regime buildings of the prison - consisting of mild steel balustrading to concrete fire escape stairs, window grills, security cages and open mesh flooring to riser in-fills.
