Sundt and joint venture partner Layton Construction were recently selected by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation as the design-build contractor for a new correctional housing facility near San Diego.
Teaming with Arrington Watkins Architects, Sundt Layton will design and construct the new 317,000-square-foot housing facility at the R.J. Donovan Correctional Complex in Otay Mesa, Calif. The $169 million detentions facility construction project will include three Level II 264-bed housing units for a total of 792 inmates. In addition to these housing units, the project will include programming, health care, visitation and other support components.
The new housing facility is funded by the passage of Senate Bill 1022. Sundt Layton will begin construction on the project in 2015.
