WATERLOO WOMEN'S CENTER FOR CHANGE

Correctional Facility

With our extraordinary project experience for Law Enforcement Agencies, Kraemer Brothers traveled to Waterloo, Iowa to construct this 45-bed, low-security, residential correctional facility. This new facility also includes a field office wing consisting of conference rooms and offices. Built to LEED Gold Certified standards, the building utilizes a geothermal well with groundwater extraction and re-injection wells as well as an energy recovery ventilator. Inside, the lobby and conference rooms feature acoustical tile and exposed wood decking ceilings along with glu-lam wood beams. Outside, the building features brick and cut-stone veneer, metal wall panels, and clerestory glass windows. The unique landscaping includes rain gardens, native plantings, prairie grasses, and porous unit pavers. Meeting Iowa Department of Corrections’ strict standards, this building has advanced building automation and security systems.
