This state-of-the-art facility incorporates the newest technology and latest trends in Justice design.
A maximum-security facility, this is the first federal prison to incorporate a four-story special housing/special confinement unit to hold disciplinary, death row, and administrative segregation inmates.
The initial phase of the Miami Correctional Facility called for housing for 1,200 medium-security offenders with 200 minimum-security offenders and allowance for 400 additional beds in the future. In Phase II of the project, additional buildings were constructed on the remaining 70 acres of the 200-acre site.
The design team at Elevatus architecture developed an original and staff-efficient design concept for this jail, which is equipped with the latest technology in video/audio visitation.
Included in this project was the relocation of the state certified and recognized Fire and Police Academies, the newly formed Fort Wayne Area Public Safety Foundation, and training programs for other frontline emergency services as well as anti-terrorism and business personnel.
It was important to the commissioners that the design of the facility relate to the rich architectural detail of downtown Richmond. Throughout the design process, the team at Elevatus met with county commissioners, city council members, and several other interest groups to identify a design that was acceptable to all stakeholders.
The Fort Wayne architects of Elevatus, formerly SchenkelShultz Architecture Fort Wayne, were engaged by the North Carolina Department of Correction to design a new Regional Medical Center for its Central Prison.
The architects at Elevatus, formerly SchenkelShultz Architecture Fort Wayne, designed both this facility and the North Carolina Central Prison Regional Medical Center connected to it on the same property.
