The original task order consisted of preparing 35% design/build bridging documents, however, as the work progressed, the decision was made to modify the contract, ﬁrst to 60% design documents, and ﬁnally to design-bid-build 100% design documentation with IFC documents (Issued for construction) as the ﬁnal contract documentation.
The compound includes guard towers, entry control points, sally ports, and a self-suﬃcient compound for electrical, mechanical, plumbing, ﬁre prevention and sewer systems. The prison is designed under a very restrictive budget. The original target budget was $16,000 per bed, or a total construction cost excluding the site of under $5,000,000. Through a cooperative eﬀort with the local team members led by architect Eduardo Castellon, local INL staﬀ, and the Hollingsworth Pack US-based team, the design was reﬁned to reduce costs and still provide the basic functions required. From a security perspective, the project contains gates, fencing & walls and technical security monitoring of the perimeter.
Hollingsworth Pack was the prime consultant and project manager, also providing professional design services for architecture, landscape architecture, civil and structural engineering. Services included cost estimating.
