Schemes in Stirling, Dundee and Glasgow

Galliford Try and Ogilvie have won contracts worth almost £70m to build three Scottish prisons.


Morrison Construction, Galliford Try’s Scottish arm, will build a new £54m women’s prison in Stirling.

The Women’s National Facility will house 80 inmates and be built on the site of the existing Cornton Vale prison (pictured).

Construction will take place over two phases, with work on phase one finishing in December 2021 and phase two set to be completed by February 2023.

Stirling-based Ogilvie, which was appointed to build a Marriott hotel in Glasgow in January this year, has been awarded contracts worth £16m to build two community custody units for female prisoners.

One unit will be built in Hilltown, Dundee, while the other will be located in Maryhill, Glasgow.

The two units will house between 16 and 24 inmates.
