Utah Department of Corrections
Salt Lake City, UT: UT Department of Corrections (AP&P Fortitude Treatment Center)
ARCHITECT: GSBS Architects
SIZE: 45,000 SF
This contract involved constructing an intake area, processing area, kitchen, and secured dormitory quarters for the Utah Department of Corrections in Salt Lake City, UT. The facility enables struggling parolees to remain in the community under parole supervision rather than being returned to prison. The original structure needed substantial renovation and buildout to accommodate the secured facilities. This required building two levels of housing inside an existing warehouse, by erecting steel frame and pouring a concrete slab for the second level. The complete facility provides housing for 180 inmates.
