The mission of the North Close Custody Facility Expansion was to provide 900+ high security beds at a historic state penitentiary, providing additional beds, and reorganizing and revitalizing the campus. People and product flows were simplified and clarified; staff and land-use efficiency was maximized.

Four buildings in the Washington State Penitentiary North Close Custody expansion project have been awarded LEED Silver certification. HDR Architecture and Turner Construction Co., in a joint venture, provided design and construction services for this integrated design-build project. Buildings earning LEED Silver certification included the administration building, a core services facility, an intensive management/segregation unit and four-unit close-custody housing facility. This initiative included energy saving implementations, local construction participation and creative land planning. The project was delivered using the Integrated Project Delivery model within a design-build setting, resulting in a seamless transition from design to construction, providing the owner with a higher level of quality and completeness.

The North Close Custody expansion received the Best Public Building Award from Northwest Construction magazine.
