Mahoning County Justice Center – Youngstown, OH

DESCRIPTION:
The Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown, Ohio, build for the Mahoning County, Ohio is an eight-story, 198,000-square-foot structure that houses 446 inmate cells, staff facilities, a 911 emergency center, sheriff’s administrative offices, and areas for kitchen, laundry, recreation and medical/dental care.

Mike, Jr. says the justice center, which took a year and a half to complete, was a major achievement due to the fact that it is located downtown and has a lot of tight spaces. He says Coates was the only local contractor competing on the job. “It moved us a tier up,” he says.

STRUCTURAL SYSTEM:
Lower Level – Cast-in-place concrete walls
Stair Towers – Cast-in-place concrete
Upper Levels – Structural steel with masonry

Mike Coates was responsible for general trades on this project. Architect: K. Anthony Hayek & Associates, Inc., Youngstown, Ohio
