Wien / Stuttgart / Willich, 21.10.2020 - The joint venture of STRABAG subsidiary Züblin and BAM Deutschland AG are building the new Willich I prison. The contract was awarded by the client Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW and has a value in the low three-digit-millions € range. Planned according to modern prison standards, the new buildings replace the outdated, partly dilapidated, existing buildings from the years 1900 to 1905, most of which were already demolished in advance. With a significant increase in capacity from 400 to 768 prison places for male prisoners, the construction project also takes into account the increased space requirements at the prison location in Willich-Anrath. The extensive project with a gross floor area of 63,661 m² includes the construction of two detention houses, a multi-purpose building, a workshop building with a gym, a sports field, connecting corridors and a parking lot. The project will be constructed over a period of five years and is divided into two separate construction phases. In November 2020 the joint venture will commence construction with completion scheduled for the end of 2025.
