Project Description


Centre County Correctional Facility
Bellefonte, PA

The new 112,570 square foot Centre County Correctional Facility is designed for an initial capacity of 328 beds with room for future expansion to 600 beds.  High security inmates are housed in single occupancy cells with male and female medium security inmates and intake inmates housed in double occupancy cells.  Male and female work release inmates are housed in three dormitory units.  Housing units are designed to reduce long-term staffing costs with the number of inmates in a typical general population unit limited to a maximum of 54 beds under direct supervision.  The special management segregation units of 20 beds operate under direct surveillance.  Each housing unit has a recreation yard which is visible to staff; the yards also provide natural daylight for the housing units.

L.R. Kimball also recently provided engineering design services for the upgrade of the facility’s surveillance system.
