JE Dunn provided Construction Management at risk services for the county jail renovation and expansion in Williams County, North Dakota. The renovation and expansion will provide much needed space and room for growth for a facility that has been operating at full capacity since built in 2009.
This project includes 34,000 SF of space for inmate housing - adding on five wings and 75 prefabricated cells. The visitation center has tripled in size and there is now 6,000 SF of new space for law enforcement offices and an additional 7,000 SF of remodeling administrative spaces. The expansion includes 12,000 SF of enclosed parking.
The new three-story addition provides expanded space for Law Enforcement including a new vehicle sally port and indoor vehicle storage. The expanded jail housing adds 110 new beds nearly doubling jail capacity.
Use of premanufactured cells and exterior precast walls help control costs in a booming construction market and sensitive planning helped minimize footprint on a limited downtown site.
