Work will be carried out under the strictest security standards and practices, and access will be limited to skilled labourers only.  Fibre optic cabling will be installed throughout the entirety of the prison, running in and out of secure prisoner environments, offices and open field areas. Strict care will be taken to ensure the safety of all workers, prison employees and prisoners throughout this delicate operation.

We always provide the highest standard of customer service regardless of location.”
