California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Mule Creek Infill


Gilbane provided construction management as agent services for CDCR’s Mule Creek Infill. The project included a new, stand-alone complex consisting of six housing units, healthcare, work/education buildings, visitation areas, and additional support and infrastructure components. The 1,584-bed Level II dorm complex is half a mile from the existing prison and is enclosed within an electrified fence security perimeter. It houses general population residents as well as medical and mental health patients – it provides a more normalized environment with support services space and recreation areas, vocational education programs, and enhanced family visitation areas, as well as 90,000 SF of resident program space. Housing includes single-story housing units with a mezzanine, with each 40,000 SF unit capable of housing 264 residents. This new Level II equivalent facility represents the commitment of the State of California to reduce recidivism by providing enhanced programs for the successful reentry into society.

Although the infill complex is semi-autonomous, it is operated by, and under the authority of, the existing correctional facility. The infill complex is independent and self-contained in providing housing, programming and typical health care services.

The project achieved LEED Silver certification.
