Our Expertise

Lancaster County, Pennsylvania has contracted CGL to provide facility management and maintenance services for its county prison.

Originally built in 1851, the 250,000 square-foot Lancaster County Prison has an estimated population of 1,100 inmates. For several years, the facility has struggled with issues pertaining to staffing and deferred maintenance, which has had an increasing impact on operations. The County issued an RFP seeking a company experienced in maintaining correctional facilities to take over the full maintenance of the facility, including all maintenance personnel.

CGL’s skilled technicians provide professional service to the facility and equipment and perform special project management tasks as needed. CGL’s program also ensures the systems operate at peak energy efficiency. CGL’s program for the prison has improved the overall quality of the buildings and adds an additional 25-30% to the life of the aging facility.

CGL’s corporate management provides contract management, procurement, executive oversight, and accounting, HR, and IT support. CGL also manages the inmate labor work force used for prison maintenance. CGL’s managers use specialized techniques to find inmates to perform work, establishing systems to maintain facility security while inmates are on the job.
