Re-Entry and Enhanced Alternatives to Custody Training (REACT) Center

The Stanislaus County REACT Center is the capstone to the County’s expansion of the Public Safety Center. This facility is the fourth and final building (project 4) of the Public Safety Center jail complex. Capital provided criteria design and construction review for projects 1, 3, and 4 of the expansion.

The new REACT center will provide rehabilitation services to inmates nearing the completion of their sentence. This facility’s services will help inmates with a smooth re- entry into society and reduce recidivism rates. To help meet these goals, the REACT center includes housing beds, a family reunification area, vocational training, and other program space along with an administrative building. It contains four transitional housing units and three minimum housing units containing 288 inmate beds in total.

Capital assisted with the project from initial conception, through criteria development, value engineering and budgeting analysis, contractor selection and finally, construction observation to ensure a successful project. Capital worked to ensure the facility would be built to meet the County’s goals of energy efficiency, reliability, and maintainability. The system included high efficiency air-conditioning (AC) units with full direct digital central control. Variable-volume AC units dedicated to each housing unit and central units with hot water reheat provide a high level of comfort to the various program areas and classrooms.   

In addition to mechanical engineering services, Capital provided foodservice design for the food preparation and storage kitchen area.
