The environments BKV Group creates for managing the occupants in detention and correctional facilities play an important role in the penal and rehabilitation processes. BKV Group works with the government team to develop facilities that are durable to withstand the test of time and safe for staff to operated as well as be as energy efficient as possible. The goal is a correctional facility design that incorporates sustainable choices wherever possible, respecting budgetary restrictions, that can support a progressive approach to inmate rehabilitation and conserve energy and water.
A few goal strategies include:
- Building placement and orientation for maximum day-lighting
- Appropriately insulated building envelope
- Water use reduction
- Energy economizing mechanical and electrical systems
