Design Achievement - Due to a shortage of correctional housing in its State prisons, the Wyoming Department of Corrections had been sending more than 500 inmates to out-of-state facilities. DLR Group's design of the Wyoming Medium Correctional Institution (WMCI) allows the Wyoming Department of Corrections to better achieve its mission of contributing to public safety and preventing recidivism. The new facility enables the State to meet its goal of providing opportunities for offenders to become law-abiding citizens through a full range of progressive work, education, and treatment programs and facilities.
Scope Summary - The 430,410 SF campus operates 696 medium security beds using a direct supervision approach. The buildings are designed for individuals with the highest level of co-occurring needs including residential substance abuse treatment, geriatric / ob-gyn unit; sheltered housing; segregation unit, and chronic mental health housing unit. Internal circulation allows access to program spaces without co-mingling populations. The facility is designed to expand another 850 beds with future phases. Medical facilities include infirmary, x-ray, dialysis, lab work, exam areas, and a pharmacy. DLR Group provided planning, programming, architecture, and engineering design services.
