Attica Correctional Facility
Attica Correctional Facility is a maximum-security prison constructed in the 1930's and has held many of the most dangerous criminals of the time.
The prison has a capacity of 2,253 people and holds inmates who had disciplinary issues at other facilities. An unfortunate story about Attica is during a riot in 1971, 33 inmates and 10 employees died, causing a tear gas system to be installed that can affect inmates in the mess hall and industry area.
Attica needed their fire suppression system to be upgraded in the building 15 kitchen. RAN was brought on at 65% completion of the project and there were no delays due to fire protection engineering. RAN Fire Protection Engineering designed a fire suppression system as well as a sprinkler system. A phasing plan needed to be developed for this project to keep the kitchen fully operating throughout construction.
