Indianapolis-Marion Community Justice Campus Master Engineer

Working as a primary subconsultant to HOK, DLZ was selected for the design and consulting services on 11 engineering tasks for the development of the Indianapolis-Marion Community Justice Campus at the former Citizens Coke Plant site. The project includes the construction of an Assessment and Intervention Center, where evaluations of arrestees will take place for mental health and substance abuse issues. A 2,700-bed adult detention complex with 300-bed acute health care and mental health unit and a consolidated civil and criminal courthouse and sheriff’s office will also be housed on the site.

As the master engineer, DLZ is leading a diverse range of subconsultants while providing critical design tasks that include:

  • Civil, Site, Traffic, and Environmental Engineering
  • Survey
  • Structural Engineering
  • Mechanical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection Services
  • Electrical Services

The proposed design and consulting services include the development of the site enabling the design to 100% completion for a traditional design, bid, build delivery with design completed, and construction currently underway in preparing for use by the design-builders. The remaining building design documents will be developed to a level that allows the Assessment and Intervention Center, detention facility, and courthouse released for construction as one or more design-build projects. With the design-builders selected, construction has begun with substantial completion to be 2022.

Additionally, DLZ is preparing construction documents for an access road and bridge with an estimated construction cost of $2.5M.
