Architectural Layout and Physical Setting
To start, our penitentiary is a male prison, found on an island on the East Coast of Canada, a few km by mainland. The remote area isolates inmates from the outside world as a reliability precaution to reduce escapes. The prison was designed for the safety of the two our personnel and prisoners. To ensure maximum security and rehabilitation, the architectural design will provide an organized yet fair lifestyle pertaining to our inmates. Ferryboats can run regularly to transport our staff, new inmates and inmates who have finished their sentence to and from the island. First of all, our prison is much smaller in size, with a optimum capacity of 600 inmates and a staff of 2 hundred. In a much less populated penitentiary, we can better provide a secure and safe environment for the inmates. The architectural layout of our penitentiary is two " L” shaped properties, facing the other person with an area in the centre. This layout allows us to have a convenient and compact prison. Inside our facility, we certainly have 300 double cells, a cafeteria, a library, a worship middle, a recreation area, a fat room, a shower room, offices, and a large outside region, all of which will be surrounded by a 15' high brick wall membrane, as well as a great 13' tall razor cable fence, assuring no escapes. Each end of our two main " L” shaped buildings will have three floor surfaces of 50 cells, totaling to 300 double cells. The cells are made from a stainlesss steel framing and poured cement, the walls 1 foot thicker. The measurements of each cell are 9' by 12' with a height of 12'. The cells each have two doors, one steel caged bar door, and a great steel door, with a look hole that allows guards to evaluate inmates in 20 minute intervals. non-e of the gates require keys to be revealed; they are all opened up electronically with a panel towards the end of each cellular hallway. Within just each cellular, there is a steel bunk bed framework, bolted towards the ground, every single bed contains a two in . thick froth mattress and a cushion; clean linens will be acquired from laundry room over a weekly basis. Additionally , the inmates each have a toilet and sink combination in their cellular material. If right now there happens to be water damage and mold and inmates try to drill down their way out, they will not get far since the piping prospects a filter concrete location with nowhere fast else to go. If an defendent gets into this little region, a motion sensor should go off, informing guards which a prisoner provides attempted to break free, and he may be punished accordingly. The prison permits inmates a large number of privileges and a limited volume of freedom to do actions so long as their behaviour lets. In our penitentiary, we have a large library having a wide variety of all types of literature. Furthermore, we also have a weight area with work out gear together with a bench press, barbells, treadmills, and jump ropes. In addition , we have a recreation room which includes televisions, couches, cards, mentally stimulating games and other board games. When inmates happen to be occupying these rooms, there will be at least two protections surveying and watching within the inmates to make sure no physical violence occurs. If it is time for the prisoners to come back to their cellular material, there will be a count examine of all weights, books and other appliances, and the inmates will probably be searched to ensure that they tend not to try to take and go things look out onto their skin cells. All settees, weight benches and other significant items will be bolted for the ground. Weights and barbells will also be born to the floor to prevent fraud. In addition to our various excitement activities, all of us also have a huge outdoor area pertaining to inmates to relish and get some good fresh air. This area includes a golf ball court, turf area, and benches. We have a large observe tower correct in the centre with three protects surveying with shotguns, in the event extreme violence occurs and defense is necessary. There will become guards in the grass watching inmates to assure no contraband or perhaps other...
