strategic project management scenario

Question Scenario:

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has appointed consultants to prepare an outline planning application for the construction of a new prison on vacant land to the west of the existing High Security Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) Full Sutton in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The proposals for this prison were part of the original Prison Estate Transformation Programme (PETP), which aimed to deliver 10,000 new prison places by 2020. The PETP was ‘reshaped’ in 2019 following the UK decision to leave the E.U.

The prison building project is involved with high level of digital innovation, and politically sensitive in the society. The land, owned by the MOJ, extends to 60 hectares and the application site covers approximately 21.39 hectares of this. The initial planning application for the new prison was submitted to The East Riding of Yorkshire Council in 2017 and received Strategic Outline Approval on the 25th July 2017. A revised application was submitted in 2018.

The prison will accommodate approximately 1,440 adult male inmates. It will be designed and constructed to “Category C Working Prison Standard” for prisoners who “require a secure, enclosed environment and do not have the desire to breach security conditions”.

The MoJ has produced a ‘Design & Access Statement’ in support of the planning application in accordance with the requirements of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 – this explains the design concepts, principles and access that have been considered and addressed in the submission. The proposals were presented to the local community by way of a public exhibition held back in the village of Full Sutton on 11 April 2017 and in the nearby town of Stamford Bridge, East Riding of Yorkshire on 12 April 2017. Since then, a number of ancillary planning applications in relation to the project have been submitted by the project sponsor – these may be found on the East Riding Council planning portal and in the advertisement placed in the Pocklington Post newspaper.

Tasks and Instructions:

In respect to the project sponsor, The Ministry of Justice, draw report on strategic project management issues for the new prison building which applied Building Information Modelling. The report should base on each of the project life cycle stages prescribed by the RIBA Plan of Work 2020. The prison project is currently sitting between “initial proposal” and “fully designed” stages of the project life cycle, where conceptual ideas of “assessment of need” be translated into design. The report should only discussing the new prison project rather than the existing High Security Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP).

Sources are required to be currently available public domain information from The Ministry of Justice, The East Riding of Yorkshire Council and by reference to recent government and parliamentary reports on prison design and construction reform or specifically related to it. For further support, please filter by document types to find categories of Application Form, Plans etc., via link:, needs 12 reference from this website.  Additionally, find reference to the HM Government Construction Playbook, the RIBA Job Book, and the Institution of Civil Engineers ‘Civil Engineering Procedure’ 8th ed. of particular value. The RIBA Plan of Work 2020 plan has attached as a PDF, please using it and briefly describe potential strategic issues on project management based on the eight states separately. The report should include terms listed as: product life cycle, Building Information Modelling, and should be structured in the analysis of the location of the site of new prison.
