Corrections

Jails, Work Release Facilities, and Juvenile Detention Centers

As one of the Midwest and Southeast’s leading corrections and security consultants, Securitecture provides comprehensive understanding of the key issues faced by detention centers and jail, as evidenced by the numerous architectural innovations it has developed and implemented.

Securitecture leverages its corrections expertise to address and resolve each client’s most critical problems. These challenges typically include:
1) increased demands on intake, processing, and release centers;
2) inability to accommodate medical and mental health demands;
3) outdated kitchen and laundry facilities; and
4) housing needs for ever-increasing classification requirements.

Sensitive to owners’ budget constraints, Securitecture focuses on efficiencies in facilities design, construction and future operational requirements. Masterplanning details immediate solutions for the most pressing programmatic and construction requirements while accommodating for future expansion when growth is necessary. Podular jail design, modularized interior wall panels, modular steel cells, industrialized building envelopes, and other pioneering architectural features keep development time and construction costs down. Elevated control rooms and direct supervision lower ongoing staffing requirements and operational costs while video visitation systems and touchscreen/PLC security automation systems enhance safety, security and control. These original features and more have become the new industry standard in correctional facilities design.

From jails to juvenile detention centers, and from work release facilities to corrections campuses, Securitecture provides innovative, secure solutions designed to meet both short- and long-term community needs. Review a comprehensive list of project experience here.
