The State of Nevada hired Arrington Watkins to provide a comprehensive master plan document including a number of recommended projects, with goals of increasing efficiency of the Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC) and to help guide them in selection of sites for additional housing buildings. The master plan serves to establish the spatial, capital, and operational basis for facilities, programs and services to meet future strategic needs. The phased work plan and assigned staff were selected to provide NDOC with the evidence-based support upon which priorities for implementation have been established and developed. Our approach was built off of the work done by previous facilities assessments. We led the client through a series of decisions based on quantifiable data, regarding where and how resources should be invested as well as projections for any new or remodeled/refurbished construction contemplated.
