The Pennsylvania Department of General Services Selects Contractor for New Prison Project

On October 26, 2011, the Pennsylvania Department of General Services announced that a joint venture between Walsh Construction and Heery International, with a bid of $315,797,000, was selected to build a new, multi-use state correctional facility in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

The project, called State Correctional Institutions Phoenix East and West, had been delayed by bid protests and litigation, and was rebid after original plans were completely overhauled to meet the present and future needs of the Department of Corrections. The facility, which is expected to be completed by 2014, will be built on the grounds of SCI Graterford.
