The existing kitchen and laundry facility had seen better days at the Fremont County Detention Center in Canon City, CO. Over a four month construction period, Nunn Construction completed a full demolition and remodel of the 5,450 SF space. The complete demolition included; CMU walls, concrete slabs and plaster ceilings. A complete demolition was necessary because of standing water that had destroyed much of the flooring causing mold and rust problems throughout the kitchen. Once the demolition work was complete, new underground utilities were installed, new structural fill was completed and interior concrete slabs were poured.
Nunn built new interior CMU walls as well as new exterior CMU walls with steel joists and a steel deck that created the larger and improved laundry room. All new stainless steel kitchen equipment, laundry equipment and HVAC units replaced 30-year-old equipment. Nunn was also responsible for replacing the deteriorating roof.
This facility now serves 600 meals daily and provides laundry services for all 230 inmates. Kitchen and Laundry services were relocated off-site while the project was under construction. The $2.5 Million project was paid for by the voter approved sheriff’s sales tax in Fremont County.
