BELL served as the Construction Manager at Risk for the Metro Detention Facility housing unit expansion. The expansion was successfully completed within the secured perimeter without a breach of security.
Scope of work included one 256 bed housing unit divided into four pods, each with dayroom, showers, and secure recreation areas. The project also included staff offices, program rooms, and dental exam/treatment rooms.
The housing unit is the facility’s first “Green” building and was designed and constructed to achieve LEED Silver Certification. Sustainable elements include geothermal heat exchanger to heat and cool the building and a photovoltaic solar panel electrical generation system for lighting and electrical needs.
