Alexander Building Construction Co. Starts Northumberland County Prison

Harrisburg, PA, June 16, 2017 . . . Alexander Building Construction Co., part of The Butz Family of Companies, began construction of a new county prison facility in Coal Township, Northumberland County, PA. The new 288-inmate prison campus will be constructed at the former Northwestern Academy site at an estimated cost of $21,000,000. The work will require both renovation and new construction.

Former Northwestern Academy buildings will be renovated into a new county prison with Building A to accommodate female prisoners in an intermediate security setting along with administrative offices; Building B to house male prisoners in a maximum security setting; and Building C to be a minimum security facility for male prisoners of low risk who are authorized for work release status.

Features of the new and renovated county prison will include:

  • Drug & rehabilitation facility
  • State-of-the-art correctional facility
  • Detox center
  • Reuse of an abandoned facility
  • Adequate parking areas for staff and visitors
"Alexander recognizes that this is an important project for the residents and citizens of Northumberland County," said Rick Seitz, President of Alexander Building Construction Co. "We've put together a highly qualified team to manage this project through design and construction and are confident we will deliver a high quality building that will serve the county's correctional and rehabilitation needs for decades to come."

Construction is expected to be completed by August 2018.
