Earl A. Davis Correctional Facility

The new Earl A. Davis Correctional Facility was designed to meet the needs of 1,000 inmates. Each inmate housing pod in the private prison is coupled with another pod forming a ‘bow tie’ building configuration. A central ancillary building is ringed by the four housing buildings. The ancillary building is the core building that serves all the daily needs of the facility: food service, laundry, medical, visitation, programming space, and administrative management spaces. Master control, located at the heart of the building, controls all access into and egress from the prison. The facility was completed on an accelerated schedule of 16 months.
