MARICOPA COUNTY INMATE TRANSFER RELEASE FACILITY
The focus of the design for this project was 3-fold: operational efficiency, ACA compliance, and cost-effective future expandability.
The facility provides the county with 512-beds for short-term housing including 256 minimum/medium 64-bed dormitory-style pods and 256 beds max security. There is also a 1,280-bed jail with 768 beds of medium security cells and 512 beds of minimum-security dormitories. The facility contains multiple administrative areas along with both staff training and briefing areas, courtrooms, and a public lobby.
Centralizing these services into one building saved the owner hundreds of thousands of dollars per year in transportation costs and improved operational efficiencies.
