Federal Detention Center
Contract Amount = $9,100,000
Way Engineering performed the HVAC and Plumbing contract on this 11 story, 500+ bed facility. Completed with no lost time injuries, on time, and within budget, this Downtown Houston facility was turned over to the Federal Bureau of Prisons prior to their scheduled date, with no claims filed on the project. The project was constructed within a partnering agreement signed by the Owners, project management team, and all major subcontractors.
Storage and laydown area was at a premium, and no trailers were allowed on site. The scheduling of material and equipment was a high priority item as equipment had to be set in place at time of arrival with no storage space available.
Even though many different systems were involved in the facility and many areas were not put into use for several months after completion of construction, very few warranty calls were required during the year's warranty period.
