Miller has now been awarded contracts valued at more than £17m since the inception of the Northern Framework last year.
HMP Leeds and HMP Long Lartin are the latest projects to be added to Miller’s Ministry of Justice portfolio. They have a combined construction value of more than £7m.
The contractor also has on-going projects with Manchester Crown Court, Yorkshire Courts and North East Courts.
Works will start on site at both HMP Leeds and HMP Long Lartin in January 2014. Work packages include the design and build of a new reception building; design and build of a new control room; and installation of new, site-wide alarm systems.
Miller Construction chief executive Chris Webster said: “We are delighted at having secured these latest projects which follow on from a succession of contracts awarded through this important framework during the past year.
“These latest awards add to our growing reputation as a framework contractor ensuring value-for-money solutions to the Ministry of Justice facilities in the North. We look forward to delivering these projects successfully whilst also accruing others throughout the remainder of the six-year framework.”
The on-going North East Courts contract sees Miller upgrading 14 court houses, with work packages covering the upgrade of electrical infrastructure, installation of building management systems (BMS) and boilers.
The Yorkshire Courts contract covers five courts and work includes new access lifts, boilers and glazing. A second phase of similar upgrade and repair works is also under way at Manchester Crown Court.
