Huttonsville Correctional Center

Originally designed by Tucker and Silling Architects (a forerunner to Silling Architects) in 1938, the Huttonsville Correctional Center has undergone numerous renovations and additions to maintain its usefulness as a primary WV adult male correctional facility.

The Huttonsville Correctional Center Cell Block Addition project involved additions and renovations totaling a combined 101,875 square feet and included two, 120-bed medium security cell blocks placed between the existing dormitory components and linked to the primary corridor system. Additional project components included prison industries, vocational education, administration renovation and addition, security tower, chapel, laundry renovation and addition, kitchen renovation, security fence and high mast lighting, clinical facilities renovation, and mechanical upgrades. The total construction cost was $14,048,000 and the project was completed in 2000.

Completed in early 2007, the Dormitory Addition and Renovation project involved a creative lateral expansion of the two three-story dormitory wings and

converting them from open, dormitory style housing into more secure two– and six-man housing cells.  As second phase of the project included the replacement of two existing 1975 fuel oil 600hp Cleaver Brooks boilers and related support, including electrical service, deaerator tanks, and water softeners. A third phase of the project involved the replacement of the institution’s kitchen concrete floor slab, which had suffered extreme deterioration, including cracked beams, erosion and spalling of the concrete from the joists, and exposed and rusted steel reinforcing.

This latest addition to the Huttonsville Correctional Center campus provides a new, 5,400 square foot work camp housing 48 inmates for the WV Division of Corrections.  The facility also includes an open multi-purpose room which will serve as a day room and dining area, two C.O. offices, a full warming kitchen, showers and toilets, and laundry room.
