With Novell Sentinel, we have a unified, real-time view of malicious activity across our diverse global environment from a central console," said Keith Rohwer, NCDOC
director of Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation.
The first design team included Fripp and NCDOC operational staff.
NCDOC chose tunnel forming because of reduced costs and labor time compared to modular precast concrete construction.
NCDOC currently is designing its next wave of close security prototypes.
Through the use of prototypes, NCDOC has rapidly completed facilities at reduced costs and addressed capacity deficits promptly.
Instead, NCDOC prefers building 700 to 1,200-bed facilities at various locations throughout the state.
NCDOC has avoided direct involvement in land acquisition and instead relies on counties to provide potential prison sites at no cost to the state as their contribution to economic development.
Although the NCDOC prototype was in a rural setting, the Ohio team saw many features they liked for their proposed urban residential site.
With subsequent design refinements and site adaptation, the NCDOC prototype footprint proved compact enough to fit on the site.
These direct sight lines sold Blodgett on the NCDOC prototype, along with control room locations and versatility of inmate support areas.
