Wilson Electric has partnered with CML Security who is the state-wide security system provider and detention contractor for the new Utah State Correctional Facility.
We provided special systems services, BIM and start-up assistance for six buildings on the new Utah State Correctional Facility campus totaling 280,000 square feet. The 170-acre Utah State Prison site sits near 7200 West and I-80. The new prison will house 3,600 inmates and the current prison in Draper will close.
Concrete walls are poured on site, then stacked up to form the new men's maximum security unit. Once the walls are stacked up, a crane drops in the cells which are manufactured offsite. The cells come with everything already inside including a metal bed, toilet, sink and a small desk. The ceiling of the cell becomes the floor for the unit above.
Behind the cells, corridors have been constructed so that maintenance can be done on electrical, sewer and other utilities without ever having to go into a cell. This process is much more inexpensive and efficient, allowing for an entire building to be completed in as little as one month
