Remann Hall Juvenile Facility
Pierce County, WA
The initial facility upgrade was completed to expand and update the juvenile hall and provide three on-site courtrooms. Office and work spaces were included at this time for public defender and prosecution personnel assigned to the juvenile court system. The expansion to the facility consisted of 5 12-cell housing pods and one intake unit with 16 cells. The existing areas for support services were remodeled and updated and included a kitchen, medical, education and visitation area.
The security system was being further upgraded to include a modern touchscreen control system and other improvements. Installation of a new fire alarm system into all areas of the facility as well as integration of the existing limited door controls into the new PLC based control system occured.
ACSI was engaged to provide design and construction management services to Pierce County for the new upgrade. ACSI’s scope of services included security, life-safety and communications systems to support the planned secure operation of the facility.
More specifically, ACSI was responsible for the design of the integrated security control systems (door controls, CCTV, and intercom), dayroom and all call paging, entertainment television, and fire alarm systems as well as the conduit infrastructure to support these systems. Back up power is provided by UPS systems to maintain secure operations during any transitions to self generated power.
ACSI designed the conduit system to support the telecommunications and data systems that were installed in its previous engagement.
