Highland Associates was commissioned by Montgomery County to provide architectural and engineering design services for a 512-bed work release and DUI treatment facility located adjacent to the existing Montgomery County Correctional Facility. The project includes a 20,000-square-foot Administrative Support Facility connected to the existing building which includes Administrative Offices, Staff Training, Booking, Judge’s Courtroom & Chamber, separate Public/Staff/Resident Entries, Public Lobby, Visitation and Classrooms.
The 512-bed facility is constructed in four pre-manufactured modular units constructed by NRB, Inc. located in Ephrata, PA. Each housing unit includes 128-bed dormitory style sleeping areas, shower and restroom facilities, dayroom and consultation areas. In addition, each housing unit has access to outdoor yards.
Montgomery County and the entire team involved with this project focused on a cost effective expansion and operation that will maximize housing functionality while maintaining public safety. The team includes The Lichtman Associates; Carroll Engineering (Civil); and Architsec (Security Consultant). Construction Management will be carried out by Joseph Jingoli & Son, Inc. and Czop/Spector. The total construction cost is approximately $21,000,000 and was completed in June 2011.
