This challenging project included a great deal of specialty equipment including an electronic security system with more than 120 cameras. Walls are made from masonry block filled with high-strength grout.
Au’ Authum Ki / Kitchell met the client’s requirements for Native American hiring by pre-qualifying Community member-owned firms and determining the level of participation they could successfully take on. Smaller portions of work were awarded to prequalified Community subcontractors. As firms completed their subcontracts, they were awarded more work.
To ensure a smooth transition into the working building, Au’ Authum Ki/Kitchell worked with Department of Corrections personnel for several weeks at the end of the project to train them on the facilities before inmates were moved into the new building.
