The Massachusetts Department of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) selected Kleinfelder to design the new $14 million housing addition to the Western Massachusetts Women’s Correctional Center in Chicopee, Massachusetts. The construction is being accomplished under the Commonwealth’s Chapter 149A CM at Risk delivery process.
With the Integrated Project Delivery approach, DCAMM will deliver the project with a guaranteed price within their allotted budget. The Sheriff’s Office benefits by being an integral part of the design team to make sure its operational and security needs are fully addressed. The project is expected to achieve MA LEED Plus certification, which will reduce long-term energy costs.
