Clark/Sullivan and Van Woert Bigotti Architects, under a design-build contract, constructed this 70,000 square foot housing unit on the site of a fully operational men’s prison, and despite doubling the original scope of work, completed this project on schedule and on budget. Security precautions and unseasonable weather created difficult job site conditions. Thanks to our team’s prior experience in prison construction, the difficult job site conditions created by extremely tight security measures did not interfere with construction progress and timely project completion. Added work scope included a prison cafeteria, classrooms, administrative offices and a mirror image housing unit.
“Prison projects are difficult due to many security issues. The Warm Springs projects actually converted a women’s prison into a men’s correctional center including adding another housing unit, a new programming building and remodeling existing culinary / dining facility. Due to the partnering effort with Clark/Sullivan Construction, the projects were completed on time and within estimated budgets. This project had everything form keeping 200 inmates secure during construction to weather problems and design-build issues with the Department of Prisons. The project owed smoothly and was kept on track. The State is pleased with the overall results and Clark/Sullivan’s construction team.” – Dan Daily, Project Manager n
