Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a specialist electrical services contract at HMP Bronzefield on the outskirts of Ashfield, Surrey.
HMP Bronzefield is an adult and young offender prison for females – the only purpose-built prison solely for women in the UK and is the largest female prison in Europe. The prison is operated by Sodexo Justice Services.
Accommodation at Bronzefield is divided into four main residential units, each holding approximately 135 women. The prison also has a 12-bed Mother and Baby Unit, accommodating children up to 18 months old. Bronzefield has a Level 4 Healthcare provision with in-patient facilities for 18 women, as well as a smaller 10-bed Help & Direction Unit.
In this contract, engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd completed a test and inspection of the lightning protection system in place at the prison, in line with British standards. If any areas are found to need maintenance in such inspections, PTSG’s engineers are fully trained and experienced to carry out the necessary work to ensure the system remains fully operational.
