Design that Promotes Law-Abiding Youth
Manson Youth Center
BVH aims to provide our correction clients with realistic design solutions that effectively address operational and security needs, and our work at the Manson Youth Institution is no exception. As prime consultant, BVH worked closely with the Department of Correction staff and administration to design comprehensive renovations at this maximum-security correctional facility for youthful males.
The goal for staff at Manson Youth Institution is to provide a climate which enhances inmate social skills while promoting ethics, attitude and behavior. BVH's upgrade and repair work helped reinforce this physical climate. Coordinating closely with the facilities group and administration to minimize disturbances and interruptions to the occupants, BVH's design work achieved the following:
Size / Cost
70,000 SF / $6.2 million
Civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing/fire protection and construction administration
