16′ High Recreation Yard Observation Tower
December’s Project of the Month belongs to this steel tower system delivered to the Florida Department of Corrections for the Jackson Correctional Facility. The Burea Chief of Construction, William Gravely noted, “This tower is manned by Florida DOC officers during outdoor recreation periods at the Institution. A small metal shelter was added after installation by DOC staff, but the tower was easy to install and works perfectly for its intended use.”
The platform itself is a simple 6’x8′ rectangle with a bar grated decking system with an IBC stair system leading up to the platform. The 16′ high tower includes cross-bracing in various areas to help reinforce the structure.
