Caddell, in joint venture with its local Pensacola partner, Whitesell-Green, is performing the design-build of a new state-of-the-art 300,000 SF detention facility on a 19-acre property adjacent to an existing jail. Caddell’s architect/engineer is GRW with whom Caddell has teamed for the design/build of other major correctional projects. The three-story building will house 720 inmates and include a secure sallyport; an inmate intake and receiving area; dining and kitchen service areas that will serve both the old and new facilities; and all associated MEP, civil, and environmental systems. The new facility will anchor a redevelopment initiative for an economically depressed section of Pensacola. It was specifically designed to complement future commercial office and retail neighbors and “not look like a jail”. Completion is scheduled for early 2020.
Caddell is an international construction firm headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama, with a $1.5 Billion portfolio in correctional projects nationwide.
