California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) proposes to remodel an existing vocational building to make room for Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT) programs for inmates. The project consists of remodeling 10,616 square feet of space within Building 32 which involves construction of approximately 14 treatment classrooms, 6 offices and open office space for 25 work stations. The scope of work includes replacement windows and roof, installing walls and doors, drop ceilings, utilities, heating venting and air conditioning, voice and data connections and the addition of restrooms and fixtures compliant with current building codes and Americans with Disability Act (ADA) requirements. Upgrades to the fire alarm system, mezzanine area and electrical outlets and lighting will also be part of this project. All work shall be in compliance with CDCR Design and Construction Policy Guidelines, Building Codes, ADA and State Fire Marshal (SFM) requirements.
The project will allow CDCR to provide rehabilitative programs to prepare inmates for integration into society, thus reducing recidivism rates.
