Phase I of the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office Correctional Complex in New Orleans was a three-story, 163,885 square-foot kitchen/warehouse facility that serves more than 25,000 meals in a 12- to 14-hour period.

The facility’s central power plant generates eight mega-watts of emergency generator power, enough to run 750,000 square feet of office space. More than one mile of shelving will provide ample storage in the warehouse.

Phase 2 of the Correctional Complex included a new inmate housing structure with 1,438 beds, a new permanent intake and processing center, and administrative facilities.

KWAME provided program/construction management in support of this redevelopment effort.
