Balfour Beatty Awarded Approximately $320M to Deliver New Prison in Georgia

ATLANTA, GA — Balfour Beatty will deliver a new state prison in Georgia valued at approximately $320 million on behalf of Georgia State Financing and Investment Commission, in association with Georgia Building Authority and the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC).

The modern facility will support GDC’s operations in providing a highly efficient, state-owned and operated prison system that meets the evolving needs of correctional services for decades to come. The facility will support services for 3,000 inmates including housing, administration, programming, general and vocational education, medical, intake, and more.

Balfour Beatty will be the construction manager at risk and will engage early in programming and design of the new prison, providing collaborative preconstruction and constructability services throughout the design phase.

Design and preconstruction services will start immediately with the construction contract anticipated in Q4 2023.

Balfour Beatty is a provider of general contracting, at-risk construction management, and design-build services for public and private sector clients across the United States. Performing heavy civil and vertical construction, the company is part of Balfour Beatty plc, an international infrastructure group that provides infrastructure that supports daily lives, communities, and economic growth.
