David Bailey Furniture Systems, leading manufacturer and supplier of specialist fitted furniture for the healthcare and public sectors, has been awarded a £15,000 contract to supply a range of fitted furniture for the refurbishment of Swinfen Hall Young Offenders Institute in Staffordshire.
This project will be the fourth prison sector contract David Bailey has secured in 12 months, having already completed contracts in Lewes Prison, Ashford Prison and Peterborough Prison earlier this year.
Furniture for prisons
In the first part of the Swinfen Hall two stage project, David Bailey will change the face of the kitchenette, laundry and staff office with new fitted units, sinks, worktops and shelving. The second stage involves the refurbishment of the dentist’s surgery, treatment room, staff area and pharmacy, which will be transformed by new worktops, draw units and secure wall-mounted cupboards.
Leading design practice Hickton Madeley Architects specified David Bailey Furniture Systems for the project, with main contractor Morrison Construction Services overseeing the project management.
“David Bailey’s specialist fitted furniture for Swinfen Hall is functional, secure and cost competitive,” commented Richard Handley, Morrison Construction Services.
With the option to specify from standard ranges or develop bespoke designs, David Bailey Furniture Systems offers robust furniture for a vast range of interior environments and is now firmly established as the market leader for specialist fitted furniture.
Swinfen Hall opened in February 1963 as a borstal and, in 1972, became a long-term young offenders institution. A new housing block was built in 1998 to cope with the expanding population, and it now has capacity for 319 inmates.Case study date: January 30, 2014
