The UK construction group has announced that its Scottish business Morrison Construction has been appointed by the Scottish Prison Service to build a new women’s national facility.

The new building will replace Scotland’s only female prison at Cornton Vale in Stirling.

Galliford Try, a FTSE 250 business and one of the UK’s leading housebuilding, regeneration and construction groups, will redevelop the existing facility in a programme of demolition and new build.
