Raleigh, NC

This $140,000,000 expansion included 672 new beds for inmate housing  and the associated support requirements to include medical and infirmary, food services, laundry, warehouse, academic education, magistrates, intake and booking, CCBI, mechanical, and administration. 

The inmate housing addition was constructed with cast-in-place concrete beams, pan joists, and columns and was comprised of two “super floors” that each supported a mezzanine level of inmate cells. The concrete foundations of the inmate housing addition are supported on an aggregate pier soil reinforcement system. The administration portion of the building includes a large 52’-0” x 56’-0” open bay for training and a 9,800 square feet elevated officer’s secure parking area. A large portion of the building is wrapped with a 20-foot tall cast-in-place basement wall which required special soil stabilization.
