Clark To Lead Design-Build of Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar

November 17, 2009

SAN DIEGO – The Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest awarded CLark Construction Group - California, LP, a $27.7 million design-build contract for the Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar, a 99,000 square-foot regional confinement facility at the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. 

The Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar is a multi-story structure comprised of concrete masonry units with precast concrete cells. Clark will design and construct a new Level 1 facility for 120 male service members and a Level 2 facility for 80 female service members who are awaiting trial or serving sentences up to seven years. The brig's design will allow for flexible configurations in order to accommodate divisions by gender, sentence length, disciplinary status, and special program or treatment needs. 

Within the brig will be a dining hall and areas for administrative functions, storage and logistical support, recreational and educational activities, and health services, in addition to a new prisoner industries and maintenance facility. Clark's scope of work also includes the design and construction of a new parking lot with access road, security fencing and lighting, and utility systems and an emergency generator.  

The project will be designed to achieve LEED® Silver certification and to meet the military's Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection standards. 

Upon completion, the Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar will absorb prisoners from other correctional facilities scheduled for closure due to the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Act. 

The project design and construction began this fall and completion is scheduled for February 2011.
