Quality construction, design, and project management are a given when choosing a commercial construction partner. But without a shared vision by all stakeholders, a jail project won’t get off the ground. That’s why building or remodeling a jail needs to start with building consensus among county board members, project teams, and taxpayers, especially in communities with referendums.
Detention facility construction is highly regulated and requires in-depth knowledge of compliance requirements and emerging industry trends. The Samuels Group team specializes in elements beyond jail construction standards and specialty materials, and understands security protocols, technology integration, staffing needs, mechanicals, and other requirements that result in successful projects.
Designing jail facilities conducive to the needs and treatment of those with mental illness adds another layer of complexity, yet it is a key to rehabilitation and reducing recidivism and crime rates overall.
Ensuring staff are empowered and equipped to do their jobs safely and efficiently helps a facility maintain operations and minimize scope creep during construction. The right approach to project management ensures that critical staff members’ voices are heard, that they have the right technology, and that they’ll experience minimal disruption throughout construction.
It’s important to take a holistic approach to jail construction, knowing a facility’s design requirements extend far beyond a jail’s walls. Ancillary areas like dispatch centers, courtrooms, entryways, visitation areas, booking, and more must be integrated seamlessly and securely.
