Bringing Healthcare to an Existing Prison

Much has changed at California ’s first prison since the original 68 prisoners were incarcerated there in 1852. Civil War-era buildings have made way for the design-build direction of Hensel Phelps Construction Co. Completed in 2010, the five-story building now provides improved medical, mental health and dental care to the more than 5,200 inmates currently housed at San Quentin.

In an effort that began in 2007, Bergelectric worked closely with the design team – architect HOK and electrical engineer TMAD Taylor and Gaines – on developing this $109-million project. A unique element was the preservation of façade walls from the 1885 hospital building as well as the state’s oldest structure – known as the Dungeon – which was preserved intact as a part of the design of the CHSC.
