Moss Construction has announced that it has been awarded the contract for the expansion of the Pasco County Detention Center, at 20101 Central Blvd., in Land O’ Lakes.
“We understand that this is an essential project for the county, and we are honored that they trust us to deliver a facility that will meet their current and future needs,” Moss’ Mid-Florida President Mike Mazza said, in a news release from the company.
The new inmate housing in Pasco County, budgeted at $109 million, is targeted to provide additional housing beds comprised of single-, double- and multiple-occupancy secure cells for general population inmates of different arrest classifications. The project also includes a centralized intake and booking center that can accommodate 150 daily arrests and releases.
In addition, the expansion will make significant upgrades to the jail’s medical center with enhancements to treatment areas, adding negative-pressure isolation rooms and impact resistant cells. Central support facilities also will be renovated, including warehousing, food service, laundry and maintenance.
Construction is scheduled to begin the fourth quarter of 2021, with an anticipated completion in the second quarter of 2024.
The project is being designed by the firm HOK.
