Marion County Detention Center in Lebanon, KY, MCDC needed the ability to offer both indoor and outdoor recreation to their inmates no matter what the weather conditions. Rather than build onto the existing facility with traditional construction, MCDC was able to put a Libart Retractable Roof system on top of their existing outdoor recreation areas. This allows them to use their outdoor recreation area in good weather, and retract the roof closed during the winter or on rainy days.
