ATI was the Architect of Record and provided architectural and security design services for general contractor PJ Dick. ATI designed a new, multi-building minimum-security facility at the Patuxent Correctional Institution in Jessup, Maryland for the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. The project involved comprehensive architectural and engineering design services for a multi-building facility. Additionally, ATI designed all security systems including CCTV, door controls, perimeter fences, lighting, fence detection, sally ports, and BOSS (electronic contraband detection system) buildings. All six buildings are LEED Silver certified.

The facility was designed and constructed in two separately contracted phases which operate independently of each other. Each phase of the Dorsey Run Correctional facility (DRCF) consists of two, 33,000 SF dormitory buildings and an 8,000 SF support services building. The support services building includes offices, a commercial kitchen and dining area, storage rooms, a medical/dental suite, and a security control room. The two mirrored DRCF phases together consist of 1,024 beds, along with parking, utilities, and security systems.

Total Square Footage: 80,000 SF
Construction Cost: Phase I: $23.5 Million
