The Ware Youth center asked Prevot Design Services to design this ambitious project which includes the development of an unimproved wooded site for a 26,000 square foot administrative building with offices, classrooms, dining, kitchen, gymnasium and clinic. The project includes a new training building of 3,855 square feet with offices, training and conference rooms with views to a new lake. Three cottages were constructed, each with the capacity to house twelve girls in a medium-security, home-type setting. The site construction included a new entrance road, domestic water well system, sewer treatment plant, a new lake for storm water detention, softball fields, ropes course, track, soccer field, and walking path. The project has become a new model for other detention systems in how to successfully rehabilitate young people and allow them to enter adult society and become successful.
