Our justice architects have dedicated their 20+ year careers to designing jails, detention facilities, courthouses, and public safety centers for state, county and municipal governments. Our designers understand the intricacies of each building type and how to work with urban and suburban communities to navigate difficult political landscapes. Our evidence-based design approach improves staff retention, reduces long-term operational costs, and provides a secure and a safe environment for the inmates, staff and public. Collectively, our staff’s experience encompasses more than $2 billion in projects, including juvenile justice facilities, state prison facilities, city and county jails, women's detention facilities, courthouses, and other government administration buildings.
