A new role for the old prison service headquarters site could be in the pipeline.

A request for proposal for the site has been posted on the Government website with a deadline of September 13.

The Ministry of Public Works and Department of Public Lands and Buildings said the building “was built of traditional construction and even though the buildings are considered to be generally structurally sound, an extensive renovation works are required to parts of the structure, including roof structures and decorative repairs throughout and renewal of services”.

The RFP added: “Consideration will be given to any appropriate or suitable use and necessary renovations for the proposed use.”

The building, on Happy Valley Road, Pembroke, was once used as a hospital and stands in about 0.7 acres.

The building has several levels levels and covers 851 square metres.

The statement added: “The proposal must be based on necessary preliminary survey of the property and proposed works after making necessary planning/development control enquiries.

“No detailed architectural designs shall be required for the submission at this initial ‘expression of interest’ stage, but the proposal will be considered as the basis for detailed renovation proposal that will be required in the subsequent stage, if such initial proposal is considered by the Department of Public Lands and Buildings to be feasible and viable.
