Aliceville Federal Correctional Institution and Satellite Camp

  • Federal Correctional Institution and Satellite Camp, Aliceville, AL

This was the Federal Bureau of Prisons' first LEED Silver Federal Correctional Institution (FCI). GRW led the design team for this women's medium-security FCI and minimum-security Federal Prison Camp located near Aliceville, AL. The $188 million project has a gross building area of approximately 624,312 SF, and will house approximately 1,790 inmates.

The complex incorporates many sustainable design features including a fully automated, energy recovering system that reclaims, filters, and treats laundry waste water from washing machines for reuse; reducing both energy and water consumption.

In addition, simulated energy savings for individual buildings ranges from 35-75 percent improvement over the ASHRAE Standard. The vertical bore geothermal heating and cooling systems at the satellite camp buildings, a first for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, is a key energy savings factor.
