Müller-Altvatter, part of HBG Bau, has started work in Hamburg on the construction of a prison. The complex comprises three L-shaped wings containing a total of 384 cells.
Also to be built within the institution's walls are a sports hall, two workshops and a service building plus a canteen and kitchen. Two sports fields will also be laid out. The project, with a contract value of more than £17.7 million, should be completed in November 2002.
