DIXIE DETENTION CENTER
HURRICANE, UT: DIXIE AREA DETENTION CENTER
OWNER: State of Utah Juvenile Department
ARCHITECT: JRCI Architects
SIZE: 3,500 SF
Zwick Construction performed a tenant improvement project to one wing of this youth detention center. This particular wing is a shelter for youth who need shelter, rather than a detention space. The owners wanted to make this wing more comfortable for those youth. The project included replacing concrete beds with softer sleeping arrangements, and making their rooms more accessible to classrooms.
In addition to that improvement, Zwick also remodeled the administration area to give more staffing space, as well as taking out a section of the exercise yard, and putting a no-climb chain mesh and candy cane hooked top poles on the partition.
