Housing & Healthcare Facility

The Housing and Healthcare Facility (HHF) facility in Stockton, California is a 1.2 million sf medical detention center housing 1,722 patient-inmates. The facility contains a diagnostics and treatment center, medical office, kitchen, plant maintenance, administrative building, library, other miscellaneous support buildings. The project is LEED Silver Certified.

Clark/McCarthy’s scope of work included design, coordination, and construction of all buildings; site improvements and utility and telecom improvements within the secure perimeter; design and construction of the Outside Administration Building and related site improvements; and design, coordination and construction of security electronics, low voltage systems, and building automation system, signage, and detention doors; frames, glazing and hardware throughout the facility (including in Site Project buildings and Site Project site area). The work also included procurement and/or installation of equipment, and development and execution of an Extended Transition Program for the Central Kitchen food service operation, and over 144 acres of site work.

Clark/McCarthy delivered the project under a design-build delivery method. The project was fast-tracked with an aggressive 18-month construction schedule designed to meet the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s (CDCR) date-certain occupancy date. Overall, the project redefined what is possible when fast tracking large-scale projects. At its peak, the team at HHF Stockton was putting in place $50M per month and had over 1,300 workers onsite at a time. Clark/McCarthy self-performed all the concrete on the job.

The facility was designed to care for California’s most seriously ill inmates and provide a healing atmosphere within a correctional environment. The detention center significantly increased the capacity of the state’s medical and mental health services to meet the needs of inmates.

We totally hit a home run with delivering on that. Both design/builders came up with plans that were a win/win/win. We’re sort of proud of the fact that we were able to really help the local community.
