At the Riverside Regional Jail in Prince George County, Va., a 537-bed expansion will bring the total number of General Housing cells to 1,176. Two new Housing Units designed to architecturally mimic existing hexagonal housing quarters will be added at the jail’s western side.
Enlisted to supply fully outfitted prison cells for the new housing, Oldcastle Precast Modular Group will design, engineer, produce and erect 537 units required for the $93 million, 205,000-sq.-ft. expansion project. A sister company in North Carolina will ship the cells to the site fully painted and outfitted. OPMG also will produce precast cells for the Core B-Classification/Juvenile section of the complex.
The Board of Corrections noted that the Riverside Regional Jail Authority initiated an aggressive value engineering and cost reduction effort. Accordingly, total budget overages were reduced by more than $500,000. General contractor for the project is Howard Shockey & Sons, and the architect of record is Moseley Architects of Virginia. Completion of the project is scheduled for 2009.
