Ministry of Justice

The Ministry of Justice (formerly HM Prison Service) has been a Client of Baqus since the early 1990s. A variety of projects have been tackled at prisons across Southern England in that time covering all aspects of the accommodation.

HMP Kingston is an excellent example as works there encompass everything from repairs to the building fabric to improvements and extensions to the cell areas. These have included internal re-modelling, stonework repairs, re-roofing, re-pointing and window replacements and renewals. The work has also included construction of a basement area to create additional cells and provision of in cell sanitation.

The Ministry have a system for ongoing review of the performance of Consultants and Contractors (analogous to Benchmarking/KPIs) and we have striven over many years to deliver ‘continuous improvement’, which has meant that we continue to receive commissions from them.
