The Program Center consists of many vocational shops, classrooms, offices, and libraries in a stand alone building within this maximum security prison. The entire second floor houses the General and Law libraries as well as an audio visual studio. The general library consists of 27,000 volumes and the law library consists of 6,000 volumes. The facility was also designed to accommodate an additional 1,000 volumes in the future. The requirements were for un-impeded observation of all areas from the Security Control Desk. Stack areas are laid out for ease of visibility between the shelf units and anchored to the floor. All windows are security screened, and doors are controlled electronically.
Construction Documents were prepared for the replacement of existing deteriorated hollow metal doors, frames, and electric locks at various locations throughout the facility. Concrete stoops were also specified for replacement. Construction has yet to begin. The project includes replacement work at 111 doors and nine freezer/cooler doors, for the State of Illinois Department of Corrections.
