A 990 stall concrete parking structure adjacent to the new detention center and site preparation for construction of a $248 million, 516,000 square foot Type II detention center on 6.5 acres. New detention facility will consist of a three level support building, with one level underground, which will contain a public lobby, intake/transfer/release area, warehouse, medical and dental clinic, administrative space, staff services and locker rooms and the extension of the underground tunnel that connects to the existing Larson Justice Center. The housing building will consist of a four-story structure with a total of eight housing units containing 1,626 beds. The units are subdivided into separate security segments around a central housing control station. Support areas include classrooms, medical units, interview rooms, administrative space and storage. Other features include a secure vehicle intake sally-port, entry canopy, hardscape and landscape. The project is designed to achieve LEED Silver certification.
The U.S. Smelter and Lead facility is a former lead smelter that operated in a heavily industrialized corridor near Gary Indiana, Industrial operations at the smelter contaminated more than half of nearly 1300 residential properties in a 300-acre residential neighborhood by aerial deposition of lead-containing flue dust and direct use of blast-furnace slag as fill material. SCST used a statistically based sampling program to achieve representative aerial coverage of the 1,300 properties spread over a 45-block urban area with a limited number of samples. SCST’s streamlined approach to the remedial investigation allowed the project to move from initiating an investigation to signing a ROD in less than 3 years. Experience at other residential cleanup sites in economically distressed areas led SCST to propose an innovative design/build concept that would allow remediation to closely follow sampling and avoid redesign costs and project delays due to property ownership changes and changed conditions such as demolition of porches and outbuildings.
