Award-Winning Medium Security Prison for Forrest City

The 485,000-square-foot, 1,152-bed prison is an addition to the existing campus that includes a low-level compound and camp facility. REES and Flintco, Inc. produced the camp facility as the first Design-Build project ever awarded by the Federal Bureau of Prisons. The General Housing Units and Special Housing Unit buildings consist of concrete, precast cell modules and tilt-up precast wall panels. The project consists of three General Population Housing Units, each consisting of four-levels and a single two-story Special Housing Unit. Consistent with the Federal Bureau of Prisons prototype planning for medium-level facilities, the project includes a 750,000-gallon water tower and its own Central Utility Plant.

“The team led by Flintco, Inc. and Jay Tullis of REES exposed me to a strong collaborative effort focused on achieving success for the owner, the builders and the community. Every aspect of your team displayed intelligence, professionalism and spirit. The final result was reflective of the experience and skilled personnel of the team that was solution oriented and goal driven. -William Downs, Rural Development, USDA Rural Development
