Update on the Wayne County Criminal Justice Center Project

On Wednesday, August 16, 2018, the project team of the Wayne County Criminal Justice Center presented an informational seminar at Greektown Casino Hotel in Detroit. The project partners are contractor Barton Malow, Bedrock Detroit, HOK Architects and Wayne County.

On behalf of the Wayne County Department of Human Relations, Victoria Iniss-Edwards gave tips on how to successfully qualify to be a part of the project, including becoming a Wayne County Certified company, and considering Mentor-Venturing or Joint-Venturing. A Wayne County Certification is good for three years and can be re-issued by contacting her office. Additional information, including how to register in Procure to Pay, can be found at www.waynecounty.com or by telephone at (313) 224-5021.

Dannis Mitchell, Barton Malow diversity manager, spoke on local participation and what interested parties will need to know in order to bid and work on the job. The project requires that 51 percent of total hours worked be completed by Wayne County residents.
Ms. Mitchell works closely in conjunction with Victoria Iniss-Edwards from Wayne County. Both women are available to answer any questions regarding the qualification process.

Jeff Goodale, ACA, global justice director at HOK Architects, spoke on the design of the Wayne County Criminal Justice Center. The project will include a juvenile detention facility (JDF), a courthouse (Court), and an adult detention facility (ADF) that will house 2,200 beds and offer counseling and rehabilitative spaces. Inclusively, the project will be 1 million SF located in Detroit at the intersections of Ferry Street, Russell Street and the Chrysler Service Drive.
