East Mississippi Correctional Facility

East Mississippi Correctional Facility

Meridian, Mississippi

Owner: Wackenhut Corrections
General Contractor: White Construction Co.
Contract Amount: $4,436,500

Honorable Mention
Mississippi ABC

This facility is a 230,000 square-foot psychiatric prison containing four housing pods, one support building, and one maintenance building. Ivey performed the HVAC, plumbing and utility work for the prison and the piping for the 500,000-gallon water tank. Architectural design of Wackenhut’s 1,000-bed prison called for exterior walls to be constructed of tilt-up panels. A challenge for Ivey was to maintain plumbing rough-in beneath slab until all exterior walls were formed, poured and tilted on the actual building slab. Ivey set 14 roof-top units, ranging from five to 30 tons each, on the support building’s exterior, running duct up along exterior walls and through the attic. Sixteen 20-ton split HVAC systems were installed in the housing pods. Ivey pre-fabricated 128 plumbing risers on site.

Subcontractor of the Year
Turner Construction Company

Award of Merit
Georgia ABC

This project consisted of two buildings. The first is a 285,600 square foot, eight level tower containing a 1,450 bed housing units, laundry, kitchen, and medical facility. The second is the existing 27,000 square foot detention center which was renovated. The new detention center has minimal space for the mechanical systems, requiring extensive coordination to locate the mechanical equipment in the allotted space. The chilled water piping system in the existing central plant was totally redesigned. The existing piping was removed, and a new system was installed. With proper planning and pre-fabrication, the work required only a one day shutdown of the central plant. Ivey worked more than 150,000 man hours on this project without a lost-time accident.
