Koch Corporation has installed Hopes Steel Guard Series Steel Detention Windows in prisons across the US for several decades and remains a leading installer for these products with over 30 years experience. Hopes Windows has been a long standing leader in the production of detention and security windows during their 100 plus years of business. It is said that Hopes windows often outlast the buildings in which they are installed! We install even the most difficult security and detention windows despite the odd shaped openings many of the aged buildings present. Often there is an issue with asbestos and lead due to the age of the buildings but Koch is able to self-perform all abatement mitigation.
Mohawk Correctional Facility is a medium-security, male facility, located in Rome, NY. The 150-acre campus was originally a residential facility for the developmentally disabled. In 1988, Mohawk was converted into a prison. Currently Mohawk houses over 1,400 inmates. There is a regional medical unit which has a 112-bed maximum-security skilled nursing facility on the grounds of the Mohawk campus. In 2012, after winning the contract through the competitive bidding process, under the direction of the New York State Design and Construction Office of General Services, Koch Corporation installed windows throughout the campus made by Hopes Windows and Doors.
