Delaware Governor Jack Markell was on hand December 12 for a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the Department’s new Juvenile Multi-Purpose Education Facility at the Ferris School for Boys just outside Wilmington. The facility was constructed by Emory Hill & Company for the Delaware Children’s Department, which is seeking LEED Gold certification. The $5 million dollar facility was funded as a result of the Capital Budget process through the Building Delaware’s Future Now Funding.  The 14,000 SF state-of-the-art building which sits on the Agency’s administrative campus near Newport will be the new educational home for youth who are committed to the Department’s Level IV Residential Cottages.  The building was designed in accordance with Governor Markell’s EO 18 to design new state buildings to be LEED certified. The Department is pursuing Gold level LEED certification by mid-2014.
