Steel Beams Go Up at New Saginaw County Jail

SAGINAW (WJRT) – (01/18/19) – Construction of the new Saginaw County Adult Detention and Sheriff Administration Building has reached a noticeable milestone.

“They clear the property, and then they started digging. It seemed like they were down in the ground for — well they were — for six months. And they were pouring the footings and foundations and driving down pylons,” said Saginaw County Sheriff Bill Federspiel. “When the steel started going up a couple of weeks ago, that’s when I realized this project really is going and they’re moving fast.”

“Being the lumber town that we were, they had to drive more than 140 steel beams into the ground 85 to 100 feet. So if you can imagine, that’s what’s holding this building up,” Federspiel said.

He said the project is now on time and on budget.
