Though technically an infill project for the adjacent prison, the team designed the new facility (located 30 miles southeast of Sacramento) to function as a self-contained corrections center. The Mule Creek Infill Complex comprises a total of 23 medium-security buildings, including six dormitories that incorporate natural light and sound-deafening acoustics designed to create a more therapeutic environment.
Additional buildings on the 60-acre facility provide space for food services, academic and career training, rehabilitation classes and healthcare for all inmates, including those with physical and mental concerns.
HOK teamed with developer Hensel Phelps on the design-build project, which was designed and constructed to LEED Silver certification standards.
