Granger Construction served as the General Contractor on the Gus Harrison Correctional Facility project in Adrian, Michigan.

This was a third-generation facility, designed following a prototype developed for the State of Michigan’s correctional facilities. The Owners involved Granger early in the process to evaluate two precious facilities using the prototype and to incorporate changes for this facility that would enhance its design and decrease change orders.

The new Gus Harrison Correctional Facility housed 550 beds for medium and high security inmates, and was 300,000 SF. The project team also relocated Michigan’s license plate presses from Jackson, Michigan to this new facility.

In addition to the new permanent facility, Granger constructed a 140,000 SF temporary facility. This structure housed 640 beds for low-security inmates, and our team completed construction in only six months.

Our team complete all work on this projected within only 24 months. We also received only one call-back during the warranty process. This was a rare accomplishment for a project of this size and scope.
