State Correctional Institute Rockview, located in Bellefonte, PA is a Level 2 medium security correctional facility and houses approximately 2,425 adult male offenders.
The basis of this project is to replace the old and antiquated Del Norte Geophone Perimeter Security System, with a new fence mounted cut climb detection system by Southwest Microwave.
The project includes the upgrade of all elements of the associated reporting system to accommodate all existing and new detection systems.
The State requires design conformity with other replacement systems being installed at two other facilities in the Commonwealth. USA is closely managing the design process within these guidelines. During design and construction of the new system, the existing perimeter security system must remain operational.
As SCI Rockview is an active Correctional Facility, all field work by the A/E team, as well as later construction by the contractor, accommodates the security requirements of the institution.
