  • 6. Greenville Adult Detention Center - Greenville South Carolina Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA 1 Each year the jail receives more than 40,000 visitors and has an intake of more than 22,000 inmates. It is the largest rated jail in South Carolina. Contacts: Mr. Scotty Bodiford, Greenville County Jail Administrator Captain John Vandermosten, Mr. James Dorriety, Assistant County Administrator for Public Safety Mr. Dru Kennedy, Administrator for the Department of Juvenile Justice, Consultant Project Type: Prisons, Adult Detention Work Type: New Work Began: 06/2005 Work Completed: 01/2007 Project Budget: $13,000,000.00 Contractor: MB Kahn Argo Division, Mr. Dale Goldman CM Project Scope: The project was selected to be a design-build contract with a 13 million dollar construction budget which would increase the overall rated capacity of the jail by an additional 448 inmates. Programing requirements included; a private staff eating area along with food service warming kitchen; sight and sound separation of male and female inmate population, video visitation and retrofits to existing facility, secure and efficient connector to existing facility. Ongoing operations of existing facility to remain uninterrupted throughout construction phase. My involvement: Selected as the Project Architect by the PIC, I spearheaded the graphic design and development of the conceptual design along with coordination of Teaming partners to secure the award for the Requests for Qualifications and Design Services. The proposal time limitation was less than two weeks. I was tasked with the comprehensive planning and coordination of all design elements throughout the entirety of the project including: site layout, floor plans, security envelope, equipment and devices, vertical elements, structural grid layout, roof plan and equipment, interior finishes and equipment, coordination of MEP. Furthermore I was responsible for overall Life Safety, exiting evacuation routes and meeting all local, state and DOC requirements. Onsite Representation: Monthly onsite visits, observation of construction, fast track solutions to RFI’s, project meetings and minutes. Results: The project was constructed one month ahead of schedule and $300,000.00 under budget. The $12.7 million expansion was built at a cost of about $30,000 a bed, less than half of the national per bed average. The mission to build the maximum number of beds at the lowest cost and still meet or exceed all state requirements was successfully met. The project provided the local economy with an additional 36 law enforcement staffing positions.
  • 7. Greenville Adult Detention Center - Greenville South Carolina 2 Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA My direct involvement would be a deciding factor in the selection of the firm for an additional $7 Million dollar Juvenile Detention Facility for the County of Greenville, SC, less than a year later. General Description of Solution: Inmates are grouped and housed according to four security levels: Special Housing, Maximum, Medium and Minimum The Special Management Unit first floor consists of a 64-total-bed single level/single cell layout, designed as an indirect podular unit. Each “pod” consists of 16 single cells arranged in a linear format. A Dayroom is provided, each with two (2) four-man steel tables. Each pod also has its own designated secure exterior recreation yard. Secure officer station providing remote operations and secondary means of control.
  • 8. Greenville Adult Detention Center - Greenville South Carolina Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA 3 The Second Floor Level (Bridge Connector) consists of two 64-bed direct-supervision housing dormitories, which can also be remotely operated if necessary from the main control room located on the fifth floor. The Third Floor Level is similar in design to the second floor level, and is comprised of two 64- bed direct-supervision dormitories, all located on a single level. The combined flexibility of these two-floor arrangements give Greenville County 256 dormitory beds that can be used by male or female inmates in a very staff-efficient manner.
  • 9. Greenville Adult Detention Center - Greenville South Carolina 4 Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA The Fourth Floor Level consists of two (2) 64-bed direct-supervision housing units with eight- person cells. Each of these two pods was designed to include a mezzanine level for maximum efficiency of space design. The Fifth Floor Level is the central control center for the entire addition as well as having the capability to control the entire jail complex of roughly 1,500 inmates.
  • 10. Greenville Adult Detention Center - Greenville South Carolina Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA 5 “Lessons Learned” Exploration of “Jail within a Jail” Concepts: The design of fully decentralized housing units is the first step towards the development of a “jail within a jail” concept. Each housing unit is designed to only allow inmate movement for either release or to the courts. This design significantly reduces staff-intensive movement of inmates out of the units. Creating a Setting where Objective Classification and Housing Types Help Each Other: This design created a solution where all housing units are in a direct supervisory setting (with the required exception of the first floor SMU). With the total annex housing “pod” total of 10 total distinct housing areas, Greenville County Jail officers have numerous options by which to operate this facility.

  • 12. Greenville Juvenile Detention Center - Greenville South Carolina Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA 7 Contacts: Mr. Scotty Bodiford, Greenville County Jail Administrator Captain John Vandermosten, Mr. Dru Kennedy, Administrator for the Department of Juvenile Justice, Consultant Project Type: Juvenile Detention Work Type: New Work Began: 05/2006 Work Completed: Postponed Project Budget: $7,000,000 Project Scope: Greenville Jail is situated at the “gateway” into the city atop a high bluff. The client wished to meet State Regulatory Standards for Juvenile’s and expand their existing campus to include a new 48 bed Juvenile Detention Home. The client’s only undeveloped area in which to build this new facility sat adjacent to the north of the adult facility on a sloping embankment of over 40 feet in drop. The project called for separate male and female single bed sleeping arrangements with direct access to physical exercise areas, educational classrooms and linked to a secure and private vehicle sally port intake receiving and also to convenient public visitation. My involvement: Selected as the Project Architect by the PIC, I spearheaded the graphic design and development of the conceptual design along with coordination of teaming partners to secure the award for the Requests for Qualifications and Design Services. The proposal time limitation was less than two weeks. Results: The design of this State of The Art Facility was literally functioned to meet the site constraints first, and later formed into a secure, yet pleasingly modern facility.
  • 13. Greenville Juvenile Detention Center - Greenville South Carolina Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA General Description of Solution: Medical Exam and Nurses Station on the lower level; Detention Housing, and Main Control on the Mid- Level; and Dining, Educational / Administration functions on the upper level I was able to utilize the sloping grades to my advantage whereby all intake, storage and Initial processing would occur on the lower level off Henrietta Street. First response and mechanical connections were also integrated off of existing utilities at this level. The secure vehicle sally port will be large enough to allow the turn-around of an emergency ambulance or extended van transport vehicles. Additional temporary parking areas for the local Sheriff department shall be provided for as well. The building will required an elevator and two stair towers for emergency egress.
  • 14. Greenville Juvenile Detention Center - Greenville South Carolina Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA The intermediate level contained four distinct sleeping areas for both male and female Juveniles. Supervision was podular remote with the central control located adjacent to the housing units. All units would have direct access to an outdoor recreation area large enough for an open air, yet securely enclosed full-size basketball court. This recreation yard would also serve as an emergency containment area for up to approximately 70 individuals. Staff entry and food delivery is off the mid-level adjacent to the existing adult facility service entrance. The new facility required an emergency generator and fuel storage tank for three day duration.
  • 15. Greenville Juvenile Detention Center - Greenville South Carolina Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA The upper level contained administrative offices, educational classrooms and attorney related areas. Public access would be off existing parking through a grand entrance plaza. Natural lighting into the classrooms was introduced through secured clerestory windows. All levels were linked via a secured stairwell and elevator. Greenville County’s plans to build a standalone juvenile detention facility next to the adult jail have been put on hold because of the economy, said Scotty Bodiford, jail administrator.

  • 16. Craven County Judicial Center - New Bern, NC 11 Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA “This building belongs to the citizens of Craven County,” said Sheriff Jerry Monette, keynote speaker. “We’ll take very good care of it and protect it.” “Without exception, it is one of the finest, most well- designed facilities on the East Coast,” he said. Contacts: Mr. Harold Blizzard, County Commissioner Sheriff Jerry Monette, Chief Jail Administrator Project Type: Courthouses, Governmental Offices, Prisons Work Type: New Work Began: 06/2007 Work Completed: 11/2009 Project Budget: $25.4 Million Contractor: DeVere Construction, Mr. Tom Bennett CM Project Scope: In late November, 2009, the new $30 million Craven County Judicial Center on Clarks Road was opened. The state-of-the-art facility has 113,000 square feet and can house up to 292 prisoners, providing maximum, medium and minimum security along with housing units for both male and female inmates. The new complex houses the new sheriff’s office, detective offices, and a state of the art forensic lab, administrative offices, squad rooms, conference rooms, command room and an exercise and break rooms for deputies. It also includes a criminal evidence lab with three times more storage area and equipment than the previous facility. District and Magistrate courtrooms, along with offices for Judges, attorneys and secretarial support are conveniently accessed and secured by having all public subject to pre-scanning and metal detection at the main entrance. All other entranceways are secured by the addition of key pad access, CCTV and name/badge recognition. A separate public video visitation room is linked to all housing units so that inmate transportation is kept to a minimum and so the public is maintained outside of secured perimeters.
  • 17. 12 Craven County Judicial Center - New Bern, NC Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA The kitchen area is equipped to feed more than 600 inmates. All intake and deliveries are via a secured vehicle loading area and separated vehicle sally port. Inmate movement has been dramatically curtailed in comparison to the old downtown jail. A new inmate medical wing includes exam rooms, dental and x-ray rooms, nurse stations, doctor offices and secured inmate waiting areas. My involvement: Selected as the Project Architect by the PIC, I spearheaded the graphic design and development of the conceptual design along with coordination of Teaming partners to secure the award for the Requests for Qualifications and Design Services. The proposal time limitation was less than four weeks. I was tasked with the comprehensive planning and coordination of all design elements throughout the entirety of the project including: site layout, floor plans, security envelope, equipment and devices, vertical elements, structural grid layout, roof plan and equipment, interior finishes and equipment, coordination of MEP. Furthermore I was responsible for overall Life Safety, exiting evacuation routes and meeting all local, state and DOC requirements. Faced with a new Development: The Judicial Center began as a typical design, bid, build project, under the guide of another project manager. During the Schematic Design phase the principal in charge suddenly and unexpectedly fell seriously ill for over six months, recovering from a massive heart attack. Also at this time, the project manager decided to part ways with the company, leaving me entirely on my own to take over the entire job, with little and incomplete documentation by the previous manager. Eager to prove my loyalty to the company and given the lack of leadership in the office, I immediately took the task in hand and assumed all management roles on the project, from client meetings and correspondence with the owner’s CM to continuation of the project design documents, coordination of all engineering, specifications, security design, scheduling, and all preparations for the bid. It should be mentioned that the owner’s Construction Manager placed an added burden on the design team by changing the terms of the AIA contract into a Multiple Bid scenario in lieu of the single prime more than half way through the project. A year’s worth of work had to be broken down into a total of six Packages and coordinated with all aspects of the design, engineering documents and specifications so that they could begin site preparations before the onset of winter. Time to complete this task was less than two months. Package 1: Off/ Site Utilities Package 2: Building Pad Package 3: On Site Utilities Package 4: Building Shell Package 5: FFE – Interiors, Furnishing and Equipment Package 6: Data and Communications Further complicating matters was the realization that the previous Project Manager did not document early design decisions and the owner’s selection of critical items such as mechanical system preferences. The entire design was originally set up for roof top HVAC units. The previous project manager instructed the Mechanical engineers to design based on this information even though the owner requested that the design for mechanicals be based on a four pipe system from day one. During life cycle cost analysis and preliminary project cost estimates, the previous project manager changed the design without an expressed notification to the client of this decision.
  • 18. Craven County Judicial Center - New Bern, NC Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA With only a couple months to bid date, I was faced with revising the entire mechanical system from roof top units to a four pipe system. The entire mechanical ductwork and coordination of structural and architectural elements had to be re-investigated. My direct involvement in this this matter was crucial in successfully coming to a solution that met the owner’s needs, limited construction cost escalation and maintained the design and construction schedules. Due to this change in mechanical systems I was required to value engineer over $1 million out of the project. I did so successfully without compromising the design or security of the facility.

  • 22. York Moss Justice Center Prison Camp - York County, SC Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA 17 "This project has been needed for several years. And with referendum not passing (March 2006), it's taken the county some time to get the financing in place," Wilson said. "Now that we have it, we need it as soon as possible because of prison population and the need for the sheriff to have additional space." Prisons Project Type: Work Type: New Work Began: 12/2007 Work Completed: 10/2008 Project Budget: $9.7 Million Contractor: JM Cope, Mr. Randy Ransom, Construction Manager The new facility by the numbers 10 -- Months the project should be completed in 116 -- Number of inmates the prison had this week in its 120-bed prison 256 -- Number of beds in the new prison 57,433 -- Square footage of the new facility $9.7 million -- Total cost of the prison project To alleviate overcrowding in the existing Jail, a separate prison facility was required to house up to 250 inmates. All sentenced prisoners would be relocated to this new facility and plans to expand the Moss Justice Center could begin. In order to expedite the construction of the Prison Camp Facility, the project would be bid in multiple packages. Package 1: Site and Utilities Package 2: Pre-Engineered Building Package 3: Pre-Manufactured Cells Package 4: General Construction Package 5: Furnishings Fixtures and Equipment The new 57,000 Square Foot Facility was designed and ready for occupancy in less than 12 months. As the project manager and Architect, I was instrumental in establishing and coordinating all design work on these various packages and furthermore establishing the design and construction schedules to complete this “Fast Track” project on time and on budget.
  • 23. York Moss Justice Center Prison Camp - York County, SC 18 Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA The complex was divided in two by a continuous fire rated assembly. A centralized control room with visual sightlines into all pods was placed off the main corridor. Three minimum dormitory style male housing units with secured recreation yards faced west, while the maximum rated housing units were on the east side of the building. Segregated female and mini-dormitory housing were included to add flexibility for staffing and maintain separation of inmate classifications. Staff and Public parking was separated along with a controlled delivery and work/release parking area. Reception, Restrooms and Public Visitation were placed off the main entrance lobby and monitored by staff at the reception desk along with a metal detector unit. Administration, Sheriff’s Office, clerical support, officer conference and weight room could be accessed only by staff through a separate and secure entrance. A conveniently located, yet secured, medical area with inmate waiting, nurse reception station, exam rooms, dental exam room and doctor’s offices was also incorporated into the design.
  • 24. York Moss Justice Center Prison Camp - York County, SC Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA 19 March 13, 2010 To Whom It May Concern; I felt quite honored when my friend, Richard Novitsky, asked me to write a letter of reference for him. I have known Richard professionally for approximately three years and have worked closely with him on several major projects. During this time, Richard has consistently maintained only the highest standards in his profession. He has been a loyal and dedicated employee and has worked diligently to represent his clients and his company on the projects that our company was involved in. Each of these projects had a high level of difficulty with regard to complexity of design and overall completion schedules. Without Richard’s dedication and hard work, neither of these projects would have been nearly as successful for the owner and our company as they turned out to be. While working closely with Richard and often times under difficult circumstances, I have grown to appreciate this man’s character and commitment to his family. While Richard was a dedicated employee, he always impressed me as putting his family first. Richard often spoke of his wife and children in the most devoted of terms. He demonstrated time and time again that this commitment to and love for his family was the most important thing in his life. I consider myself fortunate indeed to be able to consider Richard Novitsky both a professional colleague and personal friend. There are few people in our industry that I place more confidence in when it comes to honesty, integrity and devotion toward doing the right thing than Richard Novitsky. He is one of the most reliable, honest, hardworking and intelligent people that I have had the privilege to work with in my thirty-five years in this industry. Sincerely, M.R. Ransom Senior Project Manager J.M. Cope Construction Company, Inc.
  • 25. York Moss Justice Center Prison Camp - York County, SC 20 Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA The project was completed ahead of schedule and is planned for an additional housing unit to bring the rated capacity up to 500 inmates. All site utilities and MEP requirements were designed to handle this future addition. The phase II plans would incorporate the addition of a full service kitchen. To my knowledge, Sheriff Jimmy Ramsey and his staff are very pleased with the new facility and I was selected as the Project Manager for the expansions and renovations to the existing Jail Facility because of my direct involvement with this project.

  • 27. York Moss Justice Center Jail Expansion - York County, SC 22 Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA The Detention Center is located at the Moss Justice Center and is a 331-bed direct supervision facility that opened in March of 1995. The Detention Center is charged with holding individuals who have been arrested by various law enforcement agencies in York County and held until they post bond or are ordered released by a court or transferred to a state institution after court sentencing. The Detention Center also houses inmates for the US Marshal Service and Immigration and Customs Enforcement under an agreement that provides compensation to the county. This expansion included site improvements, new emergency generator, emergency vehicle roadway, and connections to existing utilities. The new addition consisted of approximately 33,500 square feet to provide a 64-bed Special Management Housing Unit, a 72-bed General Population Housing Unit plus other support spaces. Renovation to the existing facility was approximately 21,000 square feet and included door replacement at Detention Housing Unit A plus renovations to accommodate a new public video visitation room and system.

  • 33. Guilford County Jail - Greensboro, NC 28 Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA “GREENSBORO Guilford County commissioners got a surprise Wednesday when they found out the county will likely save nearly $10 million from the estimated cost of the new jail” In 2006, while working on the Craven County Judicial Center in New Bern, I was requested to help on the proposal to secure the RFQ for the New Guilford Jail by the PIC. I was the Lead Architect as part of a three man team that developed conceptual designs and a PowerPoint presentation for the RFQ that was awarded by the City of Greensboro. The new 1000 bed facility would be a high rise structure located adjacent to the existing jail and would require a means to transport officers and inmates back and forth via a connector link. In a few short weeks I created plans and massing studies, along with building sections that clearly showed the client how all this could be achieved. I personally created the presentation boards & studies that were used during the job interview and the subsequent award of the project.

  • 36. Guilford County Jail - Greensboro, NC 31 Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA After the award of the project in early 2006, I requested from the VP in charge to be placed in charge of the project as the Project Manager. My offer was turned down by the PIC for another in the office who had closer ties with the jail administration staff. The early schematic design work was produced by an intern and handed over to a design team of about six others. In January of 2009, I was requested by the PIC/VP to take over the project due to the lack of progress of the Construction Documents. It had been in the office for over three years without a single full set of documents compiled and reviewed. It would be my task manage and revitalize the team and to go through the entire project, correct errors, omissions, coordinate specifications, Architectural, Interiors, MEP, Structural, Security, Civil and expedite the deliverables for bidding. This task was given high priority and was to be completed ASAP. My review found that: The structural precast was designed too big for any crane to lift them. The entire column grid was uncoordinated and columns not located properly. The building was not oriented on the site, skewed and impeded on adjacent property lines and setbacks. Inmate bus transport turning radii did not function and furthermore impossible to drive through the secured parking area. I found holes in the floor where structural had been left out, elevator shafts that were too small and not lined up from floor to floor with no structural supports or access for motors and rails. The penthouse had no maintenance access and the roof had massive holes where the plans were never updated and exterior wall panels had no structural means for support. The tunnel connection headroom was too low and there was nowhere for utilities and fire suppression lines to run. Additionally the design lacked foundation drainage with no, or incomplete, connections to existing utilities and no secondary emergency means to pump water out of the basement should primary systems fail. The structural precast details and the architectural details were completely wrong and not coordinated between trades along with the precast manufacturer’s recommended details. Mechanical access and means to replace HVAC units were non-existent and impracticable. The Life Safety plans were incorrect, including: egress routes, exiting lighting, and furthermore the mechanical smoke compartments did not match between Architectural and Mechanical plans (All code violations). Numerous security breaches, inadequate security bar reinforcing, and lack of continuity of secure perimeter were discovered. The connection tunnel and existing jail locations were incorrect and the entire project had no relationships to existing and established benchmarks, or means to provide accurate information for the layout of the entire building. Many ADA code violations and incorrect handicap clearances and heights were discovered. The exiting stairs were incorrect and not coordinated with Civil and grading plans. All detailing of public walkways and landscaping details were missing. Security communications and locking devices of perimeter gates were uncoordinated along with an incorrect vehicle gate specification and details. In all, along with a few trusted associates, I spent 8 months to correct these inadequacies. Luckily voting for the referendum to fund this project was delayed and all official plan reviews were in place in time to bid the project without delay. It was my dedication, due diligence and keen sense of construction document detailing that was the primary reason that this project was bid successfully, 10-20 million dollars under budget.

  • 38. Rowan County Satellite Jail - Salisbury, NC Richard G Novitsky AIA - In Association with MA 33 Rowan County Satellite Jail Facility is a minimum security 160 bed adult facility. The project will be a standalone I-3 Use facility that is extremely staff efficient. Open dormitory housing with four direct supervision pods shall be located adjacent to the main control center for maximizing officer observation of inmates. One way mirrored security glazing will also be utilized to reduce the inmate visibility to controlled areas. All dormitories will have direct access to natural daylight and a recreation yard directly accessible from each day room. Video visitation will allow inmates to have video conversation with family members. As a smaller jail facility the spaces have been efficiently programmed and furthermore, will accommodate the needs as outlined by the client. Booking with an enclosed sally port allows direct transfer of inmates out of sight of the general public. A warming kitchen to serve 320 inmates will be provided along with laundry services. Due to a tight construction budget the kitchen will be cored for immediate needs only. As part of phase 2 expansion, the kitchen equipment will be relocated to a larger space capable of serving 600 inmates. Administrative offices with private break-room and conference for staff shall be provided. The total gross square footage is 27,000 square feet. The project was originally intended to be based on a pre-engineered structure; however, during schematic design phase it became apparent to me that traditional bearing wall construction would be the most cost effective and secure means of construction. All mechanical systems will be enclosed in mezzanines and accessible by maintenance staff without having to travel through secured areas. My direct involvement in building program and the schematic layout was paramount in maintaining secured areas, allowed the ability for future expansion and prevented the company from making critical design errors. Preliminary construction estimates at the time of SD phase were on track with the owner’s budget and the design schedule was on time. This project was designed in the Revit modeling program.
