Maine Correctional Center Renovation and Construction
The Maine Correctional Center (MCC) reconfiguration is the culmination of a 20+ year, system-wide transformation to a forward-thinking, rehabilitation-focused operational model for the Maine Department of Corrections (MDOC). SMRT has been a trusted partner of the MDOC for the duration of this journey, designing facilities across the state to enable the growth of their future-focused mission.
The design of the new MCC provides ample opportunities for education, rehabilitation, and treatment services for all of the incarcerated population. New housing units provide safe, clean environments filled with natural light, bright colors, and normalized furnishings. Residents have views of the surrounding meadows and direct access to exterior spaces within each housing pod. Additional features include spaces for medication-assisted treatment, healthcare, and mental health services, a new gym and fitness facility, a chapel, and a music room. Classroom spaces are also featured inside each pod, as well as in a centralized educational building.
