This project is a stand-alone power house for all the HVAC requirements for the Downstate Correctional Facility. It was a turnkey project for DSI’s Poughkeepsie office (operating as C.B. Strain).
The Downstate Correctional Facility is a maximum-security prison that houses adult males. It serves primarily as a classification center, as it is, a reception facility for new inmates entering the New York State prison system. The main purpose of the facility is to receive, diagnose and classify offenders. Most inmates are housed here for only a short time before being moved to a permanent housing facility. A small number of inmates are housed here permanently and perform support services for the institution.
