California Department of Corrections and Rehbilitation (CDCR) will use the design-build project delivery approach for CHCF-Stockton. Under the design-build approach, a team composed of architects, engineers and general contractors is hired to both design and build the project, saving time in bringing the project to completion, and minimizing misunderstandings between designers and builders. Two design-build teams have been selected to construct CHCF-Stockton.
The first design-build package (Site D-B Package) which was awarded to a joint venture of Granite Construction and Hensel Phelps, with HOK architects includes site work; off-site utilities and roadwork; secure perimeter fencing and guard towers; site entrance gatehouse and armory; a telecommunications and lock shop building; a central utilities plant; a materials storage warehouse and related distribution infrastructure; parking areas; and other miscellaneous non-secure buildings.
The second package (housing and healthcare facilities (HHF) D-B Package) includes inmate housing; a central kitchen; building maintenance facilities; a facility support services building including a diagnostics
and treatment center, general visiting, board of prison hearings, staff services facilities, program spaces and a program management unit; administrative offices and other support spaces. This package was awarded to Clark and McCarthy JV with HDR Architects.
A separate project at the same site, the DeWitt Nelson Conversion Project, was approved in December 2010. The project includes renovation and expansion of the former DeWitt Nelson Youth Correctional Facility for use
as an adult healthcare institution. CDCR issued a design-build solicitation for that project in February, and anticipates selection of a design-build team in mid 2012.
