The Southwestern Illinois Correctional Center (SWICC) is a minimum security facility for adult males located in East St. Louis, Illinois. Although SWICC has a total of 19 buildings, the energy audit focused on the three main buildings, A, B, and C. This effort proved especially helpful to the new Chief Engineer as it provided a detailed overview of how the building should be operated and identified areas for improvement.
