This project is a new 1,000 bed facility with a separate central plant and administration building that includes a four story housing unit.  All of the cells for this project were prefabricated and the plumbing stub up needed to be right on for the unit to be craned into place.  By working with the manufacturer and the onsite trades this was accomplished.  This project had a strict noise requirement affecting equipment selection and design.  Specialty air handlers were required.  We were awarded the project as a Design Assist partner based on design development drawings and worked closely with the design team to meet the owner's requirements and keep the project within budget.
