The state-of-the-art Federal Correctional Institution, Berlin, NH, officially opened October 2012, ushering in a new era of smart buildings solutions for correctional facilities, and a model for future projects to follow. This facility consists of an approximately 625,000-square-foot medium security 1,152-bed prison with an adjoining 32,000-square-foot 128-bed minimum security prison “work camp” used exclusively for male inmates. This site employs approximately 320–340 full-time staff.
Campus-wide integrated and centrally-managed environmental controls assure proper temperatures and humidity levels for housing units and staff work areas, food service/cafeteria control, pressurization control, refrigeration and freezer monitoring, medical isolation room control, emergency fan operation, smoke control, central heating and cooling plant control, emergency generator control and full power metering.
Granular control of all environmental operation aspects allows for efficient use of energy and reduced operational costs. It also provides accurate insight into problems that exist at the time of equipment alarm, reducing maintenance time and costs as well.
