Big-D celebrates completion of Cache County Children’s Justice Center
Ogden — Big-D recently completed construction of the new Cache County Children’s Justice Center (CJC), a state-of-the-art facility that’s nearly five times larger than the previous building.
Located at 339 E. 800 N. in Logan, Utah, the new building will help child and adult survivors recover and find security in a safe environment. It will also allow law enforcement to work more efficiently. The facility offers interview rooms, a medical wing, and observation space.
“Big-D is proud to be a part of a needed and life-changing project with such a special purpose,” says Forrest McNabb president of Big-D Construction Northern Utah. “Our goal of giving back to the community begins with our involvement in projects like this. Working with the Malouf Foundation™ was also an exceptional experience, and we strive to continue to provide for our communities throughout Northern Utah.”
The Malouf Foundation™ had started making plans for the new facility on its Logan campus. However, due to the Covid pandemic, the project was shifted to a previously owned house in Logan. As planning began two years prior, acquisition of the property was key to keep the project moving forward.
“We’re honored to have been a part of this renovation for the CJC, and we appreciate Big-D Construction for playing an instrumental role in the project’s success,” says Sam Malouf, president of the Malouf Foundation. “Community involvement is critical to preserving the CJC model, and the Foundation continues to find ways to support this program and everyone it serves.”
Big-D’s work on the project began in October 2020 and consisted of a complete renovation of the residential home. The unique interior design blueprint required the removal and relocation of the existing interior walls and finishes. Although the project presented various unique challenges, including dry rot in the exterior sheathing behind the stucco, Big-D was able to complete the project on time and to its highest standards.
Additionally, Big-D was able to save the third-of-an-acre garden on the property, which the CJC plans to maintain for the children to enjoy.
