New Jail Construction Presentations
The Escambia County Commission voted unanimously during the Thursday, Aug. 10 Committee of the Whole workshop to recommend Whitesell-Green/Caddell Joint Venture as the No. 1 design-build entity for the new Escambia County correctional facility. Actions by the board at the workshop will be scheduled for ratification at the next regular BCC meeting on Thursday, Aug. 17 and are not final until that time. The public will be allowed to comment before the vote finalizing this selection.
On Tuesday, Aug. 8 the board heard request for proposal presentations for jail design-build services from the two final short-listed firms, W.G. Yates & Sons Construction Company and Whitesell-Green/Caddell Joint Venture. Each firm's presentation, conceptual drawings, video renditions and redacted proposals are available below.
