"From the very beginning Tindall’s sales and development staff were very helpful and professional to deal with. After observing how Tindall’s cells were constructed it became clear their workmanship, attention to security details and reduced cost benefits made them a step above the rest. The logistical move of the cells to our location and the final installation was performed with precision and well within the time frame allotted."
Santa Rosa Correctional Institute, Milton, FL Allan Wooden, Ajax Building Corp.
“Our decision to use Tindall's Precast Cell modules at Santa Rosa really paid off when we had the misfortune to be directly impacted by two major hurricanes, Ivan and Dennis plus Katrina, which effected the entire South east. These storms stripped the local market of all available manpower at the site. Because Tindall provides, from their manufacturing facility, a completed cell, including plumbing and light fixtures, furniture, finish paint and all associated piping and rough-in, we were able to work around the lack of locally available manpower and deliver the Project on time for our client. I don't think that would have been possible without Tindall's product.”
Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail, Williamsburg, VA Andy Sauvage, DMJM Architects and Engineers “DMJM has been so pleased with Tindall’s cooperation, the quality of the precast and the speed of erection on this project, that we are working on another design/build maximum security prison.”
Henderson County Jail, Hendersonville, NC Paul Bonsall, Freeman White
“By utilizing a factory-built product, a much higher level of quality control is obtained. There is less chance of error due to internal control by the manufacturer. Bottom line, a finished, delivered product is much better than one built in the field.
“The simplicity of the system is beneficial to everyone from the Architect to the General Contractor. If you can compress the construction schedule by two months, you can save a lot of money.”
Riverside Regional Jail, Hopewell, VA Andy Sauvage, DMJM Architects and Engineers
“The design engineer and the architect need to work very closely with the precast supplier because they are the people who really know the product. If you develop the facility together, you end up with a more economical design which benefits everyone, especially the client.”
Florida Department of Corrections Governor Lawton Chiles, State of Florida
“This is the first time we’ve used precast prison cells on such a wide scale. They’re impressive because they’re a quicker, cheaper way.”
Florida Department of Corrections Chief of Facilities Management, State of Florida
“We were looking for the most cost-efficient way to build single cell housing units. We looked at virtually every system known to man and none of them could compete with precast.”
Cullman County Correctional Facility, Cullman, AL Sheriff Tyler Roden
“By utilizing modular cell fabrication, we were able to cut our construction time considerably.”
Cullman County Correctional Facility, Cullman, AL Norman P. Tucker, Commission Chairman
“Our jail reached maximum utilization and efficiency in both staffing requirements and square footage cost.”
Eddy County Jail, Carlsbad, NM Bob Calvani, Architect, Nims, Calvani and Associates
“Using prefinished, precast cells provides a finished product at a low per-cell cost. They really aid these fast-track projects and provide a better quality of product with the higher quality control levels possible with factory-cast components. Casting them off-site and delivering them completely outfitted also aids maneuverability at the site and lowers the labor cost.”
