Municipal & Correctional Facility Construction
Municipal and correctional projects and buildings can only succeed through communication and a thorough understanding of the long-term goals. Listening to the needs of the various departments involved, and being able to apply the requirements to the construction process, is what we do best.
We’ve completed several correctional and detention center projects, most of which have been done in occupied facilities. We’re acutely aware of the logistics involved in working at secured facilities, and our professionals have the know-how to get the job done without incident. We also know that security procedures, including background checks, can impact completion times, and always integrate them into our schedules. At Colorado State Penitentiary, for instance, we added 948 high-custody beds, administrative space for a combined three-prison complex, and new support space for 1,284 inmates, including intake, medical, food-service, laundry and warehouse facilities.
We’ve also assisted the Colorado Department of Corrections in renovating their own office space to improve both aesthetics and security.
Municipal buildings are built to last, and require your contractors’ proficiency in material selection, life-cycle studies and operation/maintenance costs. Bryan Construction provides you with a building partner with that experience.
For example, we completed a construction management/general contracting project consisting of a 12,000-square-foot addition and a 26,000-square-foot interior remodel to Colorado Springs Utilities’ existing water services and facilities building. The addition housed new maintenance bays, welding operations, and storage space for the Colorado Springs Water Services Department. The space was equipped with a new 10-ton bridge crane and radiant floor heat, and special ventilation and power systems were installed.
We also built a 30,000-square-foot office building for the Colorado State Patrol. Built of load-bearing pre-cast panels, it was erected on an uncooperative site, requiring over-excavation and a major retaining-wall system. It included an administration area, conference facilities, communication rooms, computer rooms, exercise and locker rooms, and material and evidence labs.
