Lend Lease is the main construction contractor for the North Wales Prison. Lend Lease is a multinational property and infrastructure company headquartered in Australia. They have built several huge, well-known developments in the UK, including Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent.
As well as being a Tory Party donor, Lend Lease recently attained notoriety when it was fined $54 million after a three year investigation by the FBI that proved that they had defrauded the public purse whilst working on projects in New York including the 9/11 Memorial and Grand Central Station.
While boasting of its positive impacts on communities, Lend Lease has been developing a cross-continental prison portfolio. Exploiting public-private finance initiatives in different countries, Lend Lease have been able to ride a prison-building wave, as intensive lobbying leads to growing prison populations.
One of their largest projects was the Northern Territory Secure Facilities (NTSF) project, a 495 million Australian dollar correctional facility near Darwin.
They have also built countless courts and other state infrastructure.
