About the Project
Hensel Phelps performed Construction Manager at Risk services for the Yavapai County Criminal Justice Facility. The project consisted of 107,000 SF of buildings, including a 152-bed jail, courthouse and support services, as well as a non-custodial building with a co-located mental health screening facility. In addition to the buildings, on-site infrastructure and site improvements, approximately 14 acres were constructed to provide access and utility service to the campus.
The 152-bed jailhouse includes all processing operations such as intake, booking, administration, food service, laundry and medical infirmary. The courthouse building consists of operational spaces including initial appearance, early disposition court and judicial chambers. Support spaces in the courthouse include administrative spaces for clerk of courts, county attorneys, public defenders and probation officers.
The project represents the values of Yavapai County’s citizens, the judicial system and the county’s commitment to restorative justice, alternatives to incarceration and comprehensive re-entry and re-integration. The new facility reduces the strain on the county’s large detention center located in Camp Verde and the smaller facility in downtown Prescott. Other benefits of the new facility include the reduction in time to transport someone to a holding facility and mental health care on the premises.
