Tennessee Department of Correction Interior Renovations

The Tennessee Department of Correction’s District 31 has occupied its new field office, a freshly renovated, 15,000 square-foot site located off S. Willow Avenue in Cookeville.

The improved venue will assist TDOC employees in better providing effective community supervision in order to enhance public safety to the established coverage areas: Clay, Cumberland, Dekalb, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Smith, Trousdale and White Counties.

With TDOC’s primary mission being to enhance public safety here in Tennessee, the mission hinges on offender success. One of the most vital factors in an offender’s success is the ability to obtain and retain employment. An offender who is gainfully employed is three times less likely to commit another crime. The entire community benefits when an offender becomes a productive, taxpaying citizen who contributes to the community in a positive way.

J&S Construction successfully worked with both the building’s owner and the State of Tennessee to design a new layout that will house more than 55 office employees, and includes conference rooms, offices, a waiting area, miscellaneous support rooms, two break areas, an open-concept workstation area, and various restrooms.

J&S crews were responsible for providing an updated reconfiguration of various walls and spaces, and installed new finishes, cabinets, new bathrooms and zoned areas for additional tenant security.

J&S Construction was selected for this project due to the ability to fast-track the design and construction services to meet the client’s tight delivery schedule.
