The Goose Creek Correctional Center is being constructed on a 150 acre site. There are five separate structures totaling 450,000 sq ft. Two structures, the General Population Housing, and Support Services (designed by HOK and Durrant Justice respectively) are inside a secure perime�ter created by a double fence system. GPH and SV will be constructed using tilt-up concrete wall panels and structural steel. The tilt-up panels at GPH will be insulated sandwich panels which will provide the hardened wall surfaces required within the housing units. The SV panels will be standard tilt-ups. All panels will be site cast by NCI crews.

The three remaining structures, Outside Administration (designed by HOK); Warehouse and Vehicle Maintenance (both designed by kpb) are sited outside the secure perimeter and will be constructed using brace frame structural steel with insulated architectural metal panel wall systems. The inside and outside buildings are designed to create a campus-like appearance and function. The project team is using BIM.
