Speedy Erection, High Security, Durability, and Low Maintenance

Continued prison overcrowding in the State of Indiana required the need to design and build a new prison encompassing 17 buildings (14 were built primarily with precast) and housing 1,400 inmates.

Rinker Materials was involved in the construction of Phase II at the Miami Correctional Facility, the largest prison in Indiana. All four Rinker plants in the area helped to supply the 1568 total pieces required to complete the project.

To meet the fast-track schedule, precast concrete was used extensively. A typical building cycle was 20 working days, each housing 208 bed units. With this schedule the modular cells needed to be supplied nearly finished.

The modular cells, being the first project with this type of product produced in the Indianapolis plant, presented new and exciting adventures for all involved. Instead of being simply precasters, Rinker became a mini General Contractor, coordinating the painting, electrical, plumbing, glazing and furnishings required in each cell before leaving the plant for installation at the job site. This allowed everything to be joined together at the right time and in the right sequence.
