Modern prisons are experiencing a higher inmate population than ever before and overcrowding is an issue that many correctional facilities face today. Most correctional institutions are at full capacity or far beyond full capacity. Alaska Structures has been providing facilities for federal, state, city, county, and military prisons for decades.
Alaska Structures shelter systems are ideal for low security open bunk room style, medium security multiple bunk configurations, and maximum security confined inmate isolation facilities from small single-inmate pods to large 10,000 plus inmate pods.
Alaska Structures inmate housing facilities can meet strict timelines and have a lower construction cost than conventional wood, steel, or concrete constructions. Our shelter systems offer substantial savings due to comparably faster speed of erection, decreased labor costs, minimal foundations requirements, and minimal equipment requirements.
Correctional institutions have used Alaska Structures inmate housing facilities for permanent applications and in certain circumstances, for short-term and relocatable inmate housing solutions.
