Division XI is a state of the art 640,000 square foot, medium-security facility. Consisting of central core surrounded by four housing PODS, Division XI can house 1,536 male detainees. All activity is controlled and monitored by a touch screen security system. IDCS was contracted by PSA Dewberry to perform construction management services for the installation of new security cameras and control system for the entire Division XI Jail System. This included weekly meetings with three contractors, the owners and end-users, as well as weekly walk-throughs for progress of work reports as well as final punch-list production. Construction was completed with the facility operational and occupied by inmates; this made site visits challenging because security was of the utmost importance.
