- 122,690 sf addition; 19,500 sq. ft. renovation
- Detention & Correctional Facility
- $22 Million
- Date Completed:
Currently under construction, the project scope includes a three-story, 320-bed addition with a 96-bed classification unit tucked between the existing jail and sheriff's administration building. The design optimizes site usage and spatial distance to existing support services (kitchen, laundry and health clinic).
The new classification unit will also contain video courtrooms and holding tanks. Accompanying the three-story addition, the project includes a renovation of the 1970s-built cell block to create three, 64-bed dormitories. The demolition and construction will be phased to accommodate the migration of inmates as housing units become available for occupancy.
Construction is scheduled for completion in December 2012.
