Caddell Awarded Design-Build Contract for New Escambia County Correctional Facility
Caddell, in joint venture with its local Pensacola partner, Whitesell-Green, is performing the design-build of a new state-of-the-art 300,000-square foot detention facility on a 19-acre property adjacent to an existing jail.
Caddell’s architect/engineer is GRW, with whom Caddell has teamed for the design/build of other major correctional projects.
The three-story building will house 720 inmates and include a secure sallyport; an inmate intake and receiving area; dining and kitchen service areas that will serve both the old and new facilities; and all associated MEP, civil, and environmental systems.
The new facility will anchor a redevelopment initiative for an economically depressed section of Pensacola.
It was specifically designed to complement future commercial office and retail neighbors and “not look like a jail”.
Completion is scheduled for early 2020.
